As I See Him

He has the chiseled features of a handsome Nordic God,
With perfectly placed brown eyes beneath a noble brow.
A skilled sculptor planed those cheekbones up so very high
And decided a deep dimple to his chin to then endow.

His arms are strong but gentle and make me feel so safe.
I want to be held in them as long as I shall live.
He has a sunny nature and he’d rather love than fight.
Before I’d give him up, I’d rather have my heart pierced with a shiv.

For twenty years he’s filled my life with unadulterated joy,
And is a loving father to his daughters and his son.…….. 
And now this present is the past, it has been fifty years,
Since God sent angels for him and I felt my life was done.

I have his features firmly planted in my heart and mind.
I see them when I’m sleeping and every minute I’m awake. 
As I’m aging he grows younger and more handsome every day,
But I’m hoping in God’s Heaven that will not a problem make.

    How wonderful it would be to grow more handsome with age. Great write and I want whatever your husband is taking. Thanks for your kind words about my poem O'er the Battlements I Do Roam.
