To My Husband--By Suzanne Clement--United States

To My Husband

We first met in eighth grade,
as lab partners when we
had Science together.
Toward the end of the year,
there was to be a dance.
You asked me.  I said, “yes”
and wore a yellow dress.
You wore a navy suit.
We stayed together all
through high school and college
even though you went
to a college down in Boston
for journalism.
I now have a husband
who does news on TV.
We’ve been married ten years,
and it’s been wonderful.
Here’s hoping for many
more years of happiness
my dear husband, Michael!

Suzanne Clement is a writer from Dover, New Hampshire.

  5. Very good Suzanne, partner to a good husband as a great wife. A great mate that writes it all down in a positive way, with no frown. Very
    good poem that says it all, making you capable of writing about every
    subject you choose. Hats off to you and Michael forever.
