A relfection of near loss and of new hope for a marriage.

A Husband's Prayer

© Ben Shearin

Beautiful Belle, gracious and wise.
How heavy my heart,
I see hurt in your eyes.

Curvaceous, stunning-
But so much more.
A warm soul that comforts.
Gently, soften my core.

My friend, my lover, my other half.
We've shared one heart.
For a time, a piece taken back.
As I long to be one again,
I see you through opened eyes,
And the fool I've been.

May I learn how to treat you,
As a good husband would.
God to guide me- for better, for good.
You deserve the best, and I struggle to be.
Love of my life, are you to me.
