A Man With a Treasure
I know a man
A true treasure
For a wife
Yet too often
On her relatively few faults
Instead of celebrating
For all the ways
To have her
In his life.
At those times,
Is one of the
I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.
Awww, at least you see the error of your ways.
That’s the first step on the road to recovery. Thank you, Shian.
At least you know it Russ. I bet if someone asked her, she’d say she’s blessed too. ❤
Thank you, Diana. I like to think so. ;-D!
Knowing it is a start
Yup. Unfortunately, as is often said, “Knowing is the Booby Prize.” Doing is what matters. Fortunately, most of the time I focus on the good stuff!
Well Russ time to change the focus… glad you recognise the fault… that is the beginning of change…
I agree on all counts, bulldog!
It sounds like you know where the truth is….but you stumble across your own faults on occasion…. we all do. This was sweet. And honest.
Thank you, Colleen. I’ll take sweet and honest any time.
A man cannot fix what he cannot see…thus said, may your foolish ways come to an end my friend. 😀 😀 Only a wise man can admit his foolish side.
I like how you think, My Friend.
Knowing what to do is the first step. Bless you for trying. ❤
Thank you, Tess. I’m blessed by the ways you’ve brightened my life.
You are welcome. Happy Monday, Russ. 🙂
Thank you, Ute.
I hope Beloved read this post with a tissue! ♥
My Beloved doesn’t read most of what I write. She has dyslexia and isn’t a big reader, plus my writing generally doesn’t interest her. Your comment reminded me that she hadn’t seen this poem, so I decided to print it out to show her. Thank you for the reminder. She’ll see it because of you.
I’m so grateful that you are sharing the poem with her. Make sure she gets a tissue ~ perhaps you could read it to her.
I put it in an envelope with her name on it and left it where she’d find it. She was quite touched by the message. Thank you again for being the one who reminded me that she hadn’t yet seen it.
Oh Russ, I have such a smile on my face for you and your beloved. Enjoy every precious moment.
