A Tribute To My Wife

mother-baby-stylized-vector-symbol-mom-h

 

You are not hard to look upon

when you look my fear is gone

your eyes of green beguiling stare

and your hair and your hair

 

You are not hard to look upon

when you put your blue suit on

your olive gold skin a healthy glare

and your hair and your hair

 

You are not hard to look upon

when you put your red shoes on

your enchanting smile weaves a snare

and your hair and your hair

 

You are not hard to look upon

I want to take you along

don’t forget your suit of blue

take along your red shoes too

please wear your beguiling stare

and your hair and your hair and your hair.

 

  of all the creatures that I know

since first that I was born

that swim and swing and quietly grow

 

among the rows of corn

the one that I have come to love

doesn’t swim or swing or fly

doesn’t swoop down from above

 

out of the clear blue sky

she stands there cooking meals all day

or takes the kids to school

and with a glance takes pain away

 

never complains as a rule

the one who endures all this strife

is of course my precious wife
