The role of a wife has changed significantly during the last hundred years. Women now have more freedom than ever before to choose their role in life and marriage.
A Good Woman By Carol Naumann
One you should treasure, but not as a possession,
Who needs to be loved, not treated with aggression.
Her value is more than all the world’s treasures,
Not just the sum of scale’s unit measures.
She should always be built up, not torn down,
By all the words you speak, when she is around.
She needs to be hugged and not pushed away,
Especially when you are both having a really bad day.
Words spoken to her in haste and anger
Can place her fragile heart in danger.
She should be admired for her boundless love,
And looked upon as a true gift from Above.
Not used as a target for all your frustration,
But held close and kissed with loving admiration.
You should always appreciate her commitment to you,
And not take for granted what she’s given up for you!
Kiss her and love her all that you possibly can,
And don’t be embarrassed to be seen holding her hand.
Treasure each day as if it were the last,
And at the end of your life you won’t be regretting your past.
We’re Good, I Promise By Danny Blackburn
I have to remember that true love is strong and enduring,
But it is true, there are times when the strong need reassuring.
You write me and say, “Danny, everything is fine, please don’t worry.” I thank you.
I love you so, and I appreciate you taking that moment to tell me you love me too.
You write me and say, “We’re good, I promise.” I hope you know how much that means to me.
Our life together will be your pleasure. I will give you all my love, devotion, and attention, that you will see.
When we were young we took time for walks in the park.
Hand in hand, so happy together just walking in the dark.
We loved so pure, so honest and true.
I thanked God then as today for giving me you.
We loved life and each other, we promised our devotion forever.
We were so happy, so loving and always together.
We had not a lot of things or money back then,
But I had the best of life; my wife was my best friend.
We had love and we had each other; you were and are God’s gift and my treasure.
Then as today to just lie on the couch as you fall asleep in my arms is my pleasure.
It is the simple things that mean so much,
As simple as just feeling your touch.
Now all these years later I feel so in love with you.
I am a very blessed man, and God has blessed me; I know that is true.
Each day I awake and I realize what I want to do.
I want to spend each day of my life devoted to and loving you.
I want to have new adventures in life; you know that is true,
But I want to do nothing that does not include you.
We love today like never a day before,
Because each day I love you so much more.
You are so beautiful, more beautiful each day.
You beauty is more than it was yesterday.
You have matured from a beautiful young bride
To a beautiful mature woman with love and pride.
We no longer have youth on our side.
Our age is something that we much longer can’t hide.
My love for you has grown stronger through the years.
Your love gives me strength, so as we age I have no fears.
I love you, and I hope you know that you are my blessing, my wife.
I am devoted to loving you and caring for you for the rest of my life.
A Dream For You By Richard N. Cook
If I could dream
The dream I wanted to,
I would close my eyes,
And dream a dream for you.
I would give you all the world,
That you are deserving of,
And to you I would give
My everlasting love.
I would see to it
That you were never sad
And nothing in your life
Would ever happen bad.
I would wish for you
All things would go your way,
And you would always be happy,
Each and every day.
In my dream
You would stay
Just as beautiful
As you are today.
Life for you would be as perfect
As the blueness of the sky,
And no one would ever hurt you,
Or ever make you cry.
I know it’s just a dream,
But if dreams could come true,
I would close my eyes
And dream a dream for you.

A Simple Bouquet By Chris
I stopped at the store to buy you a bouquet
What I found is that it had a whole lot to say
The flowers each stood for a part of our life
And they were meant for you, my beautiful wife
The yellow one stands for a little girl we both know
She’s pretty and sweet and always ready to go
She sings little girl songs and has beautiful dark hair
God gave us an angel for our hearts to share
The white rose represents the little boy in our home
There are days that I know he won’t leave you alone
He’s happy and smart and full of such joy
We’re lucky to be blessed with such a sweet boy
The red one’s a sign of the love that WE share
Over time we have proven just how much we care
We love in the ways that makes others just wish
And hope for each other with a smile and a kiss
That ribbon that holds the bouquet in a bunch
I didn’t get it at first, yet it means so much
It stands for your love in our home every day
As the center of our family in every way
This bouquet in the store, I’ll just have to get
The best part of this is it isn’t done yet
There are more flowers to add, more times to have fun
More nights full of laughter, and more days full of sun
So the next time I bring flowers, I hope that you know
Your love means much more to me than I could ever show
My Wife By Andre’ Cardenas
Hand in hand we walk together,
God’s grace warms us from above.
It’s him I thank each day I wake
for blessing me with all your love.
The sunshine in my morning
and the bird that sings my song.
In this life when I am troubled, through God it’s you who keeps me strong.
The wind beneath my wings
as this eagle takes to flight.
You are the stars that brighten up my sky in the darkness of the night.
The mother of my children and the air that gives me life.
My truest friend of all…
my heart, my soul, my wife.
