Letter to a Future Husband

Rate this Entry
Something I was inspired to write just for fun after a conversation with my mother.

"Though you may never know it,
you would make somebody the perfect wife"

She said.

"I have always been more of guy"

I replied.

There was laughter among the silence
but I knew more than you could imagine.

I have always been low maintenance.
I don't wear fancy clothes
gold and diamonds hold no appeal
I can fix my hair in five minutes
and dress in less.

"Do I look fat in this?"

Frankly, I don't care
so I will never ask.

You held up a shirt and asked

"What do you think?"

I shrug my shoulders, I kind of like it,
but I reply"

"I will just say it won't fit
to save the trouble of trying it on"

I like my shopping to be goal oriented
go in with a cause, and get out quick.
I treat the mall as if it were plague infested.

We can sleep beneath the stars
I will encourage you to wear your hair long
and we can both forget now and than to shave.

I won't care what you decide to wear
and you will let me dress as I please
we will be sons and daughters of the earth
both natural and free.

We will make checking out other women
a joint activity. I will lean over
and say to you:

"Look, now she is hot"

and you will agree.

I am not afraid to get dirty and you know
I will readily agree to any outdoor
adventure you can come up with.

I have no use for gaggles of
gossiping girlfriends

I don't want pedicures, manicures
or massages.

And I can be both your lover
and your best guy friend.

    If I could only get my wife to go along with that.

    Enjoyable read D-M. Thanks for sharing that.

    I really liked this too, Dark. Sometimes people can be completely caught up in their appearance. I'm more like you and think it's unimportant.
