Be Tender to Your Wife

Be tender to your wife
Show her your love and care
Remember the vows you made
How she made you stop and stare

Be tender to your wife
Show her the same delight
That you did on that first night
You loved her till morning light

Be tender to your wife
Show her she’s still the queen
Entice her with your words
Tell her she is your dream

Be tender to your wife
Show her your inner soul
Share with her your worry
Beg her to make you whole

Be tender to your wife
Show her you are in need
Ask her to heal your pain
As on her love you feed 

Be tender to your wife
She is longing to be seen
As the one who shook your world
Tell me, how long has that been?

    Yes I agree. If a man ever finds a woman that can get to know him and still love him...betta treat her right!

    What a lovely thought, Eileen, this is exactly how a man should treat his wife especially if she is the mother of his kids. As our Prophet (pbuh) said; Heaven is under the feet of mothers! Indeed you all are... Always ~ Ali

    Yes....often though, men look abroad for a new love, a new passion, something exciting for they are ever the hunters...Oh well, it's good to remember the one whom you gave your heart to and who bore your children for you. I sense your love for her in every poem you write! Thanks for the post!
