Ever Since

by russtowne

The story in the poem below actually happened, and continues still.

Ever Since

“What do you believe is your most important job of being a wife?”

“To protect his heart” she declared in front of fifty men that day
“My most important job is to never break his heart”
Her replies to all those guys took my breath away

My eyes overflowed with pride and love
As the men learned what I already knew
I’ve been one of the luckiest guys alive
Since the day she said “I do”
–Russ Towne

  1. the right woman is the making of a man.

  2. I certainly became a better man as the result of My Beloved being my wife. Last week, she said she became a better woman as the result of my being her husband and gave many (in some cases surprising) examples. I believe that the best marriages, partnerships, and friendships tend to do that for those in such relationships.
