My Husband's Gift (to me)

Christmas Eve is my birthday, as well as my wedding anniversary. The picture above will make sense by the end of the poem that he wrote me.


It is hard to find a gift for one's wife,
Especially when she already buys what she wants in life.
Still some things are hard to buy,
And for that I can hear her sigh.
And so I give her a room,
The better to make her bloom.
I'm speaking, of course, of the mud room being redone,
The better to make her work easier and fun.
I'll do a bunch of it myself,
But have professionals do things like the washer and shelves.
And so, lovely dear wife,
Happy Anniversary, I'm so glad you're part of my life.

Love, Marc

It's so nice to see someone be so supportive of their spouse's interests. And thanks to Marc from those of us who benefit indirectly from his support.
