I asked that God enrich my life
He chose an Angel for my wife/


Her raven hair, her emerald eye.
Her marble skin elicit sigh
Her lips, like pomegranate cleft,
open, smile at me bereft

Of sense or feeling save for pride,
That creature thus could be my bride.

Extrinsic beauty caught my eye,
My heart did stir, my spirit fly,
But beauty out bore beauty in,
Possessed a soul devoid of sin.
And truth did beat within her breast,
With warmth, compassion was she blest.

Whene'er I stumbled through the years,
My bride was there to quell my fears,
With radiant smile, with soft embrace.
She'd mollify my fall from grace.
And seeing faith so strong, so pure,
I'd know that I could strive, endure.

Infatuation at the start,
Metamorphosed in my heart.
Became a love so strong it did.
Supplant my ego rule my id.
I asked that God enrich my life,
He chose an Angel for my wife.

I can understand! I've lived with my bride for 44 years and the only problem I have now is this: One of us must pass away before the other. That will be gross!

Wow! This is a beautifully composed poem to your special wife. Many Blessings...Frances

This is such a romantic tribute which you have written to your wife. You have obviously found true love, as you describe her with "raven hair", but most importantly, that she was there to "quell your fears." I can sense your love and admiration that you have for your wife, especially as you said that God has enriched your life by being blessed with the gift of your wife. Stop into my authors den sometime, and let me know what you think of my works.

Wonderful wife you have. Glad you told us so much about her. But there must be more to her even. Such a good write. Keep her with you always and do good to her.
Reviewed by Keith Rowley 12/13/2007
This is beautifully executed. Your words weave a web of beauty that reflects all that's best in the human heart.
