''My Dear Wife''
What is a wife but part of me.
Two made one by God you see.
A breathless love
A soothing calm
A sweet savor
A healing balm
A care that knows no place to stop
A drip of honey
A constant drop
A patience that has no end
No matter how the road may bend
A love so sweet no words can say
For which no riches ever could pay
A helper always to the end
Though weaker sex supposed to be
Always stronger it seems to me
Advisor in times of trouble strong
Forgiving when I do her wrong
Words can never serve you see
To describe the woman God gave to me
But love for her that lives in me
Will be for all eternity
