For My Husband

Solidly he stands

though I falter. Though

the ocean would swallow me whole

he guides me from the riptide

asking only that I hold tight.

When my strength is dwindling

his arms hold me up above the waves.

My protector, though not fierce in battle,

saves me from myself.

Though I throw up roadblocks

he patiently climbs over each and every one;

he sees the beauty of soul that is beyond;

convincing me that she exists though I can’t see her

gazing back in the mirror.
