Husbands are in heaven whose wives scold not

I am indeed a fortunate man
My dear wife is not inclined to scold
For if she was my life would be hell
My heart would be all shriveled and cold 

Within my home a true peace abounds
It is my little slice of heaven
Many say I am a lucky man
In fact my new nick name is seven

Sure there are times I do stuff wrong
After all she didn't marry a saint
Still my woman holds onto her tongue
If she nagged me, I think I would faint

She says to nag would serve no purpose
Men don't listen so why should she try
Instead she will walk away from me
So then I am left to wonder why

I can't read her mind, still I make a guess
I desire to remain in my bliss
So now I am an intuitive man
She rewards me with more than a kiss

For Dr. Rams Contest
"Husbands are in heaven whose wives scold not."

    Awesome poem, I don't nag my husband either, he wouldn't listen if I did. I have learned in many many years of marriage the kiss is the best incentive to getting things done. Loved the poem and your charming way with words :)

    You are definitely a fortunate man, for you realize how blessed it is to love and be loved, and you obviously don't take it for granted as your words show.
