~My Husband..My Friend~
Today, on Father's day I ponder
Why you are, and who you are to me,
Is it for all that you may give
Or what it is for me to be.
Do I love, because of how
You return to me each night,
And are always there for me
In any heartache, unknown plight
Could I consider you my dearest friend
Because I ask for some advice,
When there are paths unseen
And you guide me very wise.
Am I gladsome for your presence
Your strength, on which to lean,
Do I love the way you laugh
And sometimes play with me.
Do I draw from you our Father's love
With faith to face another day,
If you were as any other
Would I love you, come what may.
Might I admire your masculinity
Your deep voice and manly ways,
Darling, I'm so grateful God gave you me
I love you always in every way.
Thank you for being my Husband, my friend
Have a blessed Father's Day

My Husband became my own,
when he gave me love
My Husband became my heart
When he became my friend
