Romantic Poems for Husbands

In today's world, where the roles of men and women are changing so rapidly it may be difficult for a husband to figure out his role. A man can no longer expect to be the breadwinner, and come home to a set table with a five course dinner and his pipe prepared next to his easy chair. It has now become standard for a woman to have her own career and for her husband to share in childcare and housekeeping duties. At the same time he is still a husband to a woman who may expect him to be ideal example of masculinity and machismo. Balancing what is new and what might always stay the same is a difficult task for a husband.

20 Thank You Poems to Husbands from Wives

  1. 1. Following God's Lead

    I wrote this poem when my husband and I were married 10 years ago. We still have the same compassion for each other and are still following God's lead.

    Choosing The Right Life Partner

    I didn't take a chance, so to speak
    We're just following God's lead
    He asked me if I would marry him
    Holding hands on bended knee

    He said that he would care for me
    With pleasure meet my needs
    He vowed to live a Christian life
    And I had faith in him to believe

    I remember when he whispered
    It's not so much about desire
    It's how our hearts beat deep inside
    That sets our soul on fire

    He told me he would cherish our love
    And protect me as long as he lived
    We would walk together forever
    Until our journeys end

    I knew he wouldn't cheat on his taxes
    Or even cheat on me
    For honesty shines bright and clear
    For all God's world to see

    I knew he wouldn't neglect our children
    For they've been grown for quite some time
    So tying a knot together would
    Strengthen the ties that bind

    I trusted he wouldn't desert me
    When I crumbled and fell apart
    For as he said what matters is
    That he still held my heart

    He'll be much more than spoken words
    He'll be my trusting guy
    Much more than luck or magic
    Much more than meets the eye

    So we're not taking chances
    While in this world we'll be
    We're sincerely counting blessings
    And we're just following God's lead

  3. 2. Love Is Patient

    • By Haileigh B. Johnston
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2020

    When you suffer from depression and anxiety, it makes life hard and love even harder. Your life is a mess and you can barely deal with it. You don't think you'll ever find true love. Then suddenly you do. This poem is relating to how you know you have "the one."

    Poem About Loving Someone With Anxiety And Depression

    You tell me every day
    How much I mean to you.
    Now it's time for me to say
    What I know is absolutely true.

    I know how much you love me
    And just how much you care.
    You don't always have to say it
    Because you do just by being there.

    I know you really worry
    Every time my mood seems to change.
    I want you and only you,
    No matter how often I act strange.

    I may not have life figured out,
    But trust me, that's okay.
    Because with you, no matter what,
    I have the strength to make it through each day.

    You love me on my bad days
    More than you do the good ones.
    You love me more when you've had enough
    And think that you should run.

    You always know when to hold me down
    But never hold me back.
    I know I fail at tasks a lot,
    But you always pick up the slack.

    Don't ever doubt yourself
    On if what you're doing is right.
    Just know that I am so thankful
    To have a man like you in my life.

    I know I'm not always the best
    When it comes to getting things done,
    But that is why I have you
    And how I know you are the one.

  5. 3. An Ol' Cowboy

    • By Lovie M. Haskell
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2018

    I have lived your average life being married, having two children, being divorced, and giving up on love. Then one day, I met an ol' cowboy, and my life will never be the same. I always heard people say, "Being a cowboy is a way of life!" However, it wasn't until meeting a real cowboy, listening to his stories, watching him live his life by a different set of morals than the rest of the world and falling in love, that I understood. One month from today I will become his wife. He is my inspiration.

    The Love Of A Cowboy

    His boots may be dusty
    From sitting by the door,
    And his saddle a little weathered;
    It doesn't get oiled anymore.

    His hat has become misshapen
    From hanging on the wall,
    And his lariat is a little stiff;
    It isn't used much at all.

    His hair has started graying
    From "experience" he has said,
    And his body a little sorer;
    It's the COWBOY life he's led.

    His words may seem harsh
    From the truth that he speaks,
    And his morals a little different;
    It's a promise to himself that he keeps.

    His heart a bit more cautious
    From the hurt its felt and more.
    And his love, if you should earn it. . .
    It's a little better than any love
    You have known before.

  6. 4. If I Forget To Tell You

    I wrote this poem for my husband, telling him a lot of the different things I was thankful for and all kinds of sentiments he shares with me. I never want his compassionate ways to go unnoticed.

    Thank You Message To Husband

    If I forget to tell you, I had a wonderful time
    For all the todays and tomorrows
    And for the years we left behind.
    If I forget to tell you, I love your calm
    And gentle ways and how you never
    Lose your cool, even on our troubled days.
    And you tell me that you care for me more
    Than you can ever say, and you love me more
    Than anyone can on any given day.
    And what about the silly things we laugh at
    In the night, and how you always try your best
    To make things work out right.
    And you give me all I ever need, and you give
    Me so much more, especially love from inside
    Your heart that I fondly hold in store.
    You shower me with treasures, the ones that
    Money can't buy, and there are many times
    You've protected me while walking by my side.
    And how about the memories through these
    Years we've shared and the blessings you bestow
    Upon me; nothing can compare.
    So to you these words I've written from my heart
    Are true; someday I'll write a few more lines and
    Add a page or two
    Just in case I forget to tell you.

  7. 5. Her Blue Heart

    This is a short poem about a young mother/wife at Valentine's Day who has a very sad blue heart!

    Wife Wants Husband To Be Romantic Again

    There used to be a certain look so very long ago,
    when she could look into his eyes and know he loved her so!

    Now time has gone, and with it took the young girl he once knew.
    She's mothered out and tired; her heart is hazed in blue!

    It would be nice if once or twice that glance was thrown her way,
    that his glance and smile told her he was pleased to stay!

    It's not a wild adventure that she's been searching for;
    it's only knowing in his eyes no one could please him more!

    There's just one reason in this world a man keeps a beautiful wife.
    That's because he shows her she's most precious in his life!

    So if you truly love her, then make her wish come true.
    Tell her on this Valentine's Day she means the world to you!

  8. 6. My Covering

    • By Wanda J. Mobley
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2016

    In honor of my loving and supportive husband. He is my pillow, a soft place for me to rest my head. He is my pillar, lifting me up when I am down. He is my best friend.

    Husband As A Protector And Provider

    I know what it feels like to wait on a breakthrough,
    Meanwhile trusting God to see us through!
    I know what it feels like to hold your hand
    On bended knees, seeking the Father's plan.
    I know what it feels like to cry all night long
    Just to be reminded by you in the morning light
    That Jesus is our new song...
    I know what it feels like to almost lose hope,
    But having you in my life strengthens my rope...
    Thank you for being a compassionate guide,
    Assisting in my footsteps
    And believing in what God has provided.
    You are more than a friend, husband, or lover.
    You are my protector, my provider.
    You are my cover!
    Because of you,
    I know what it feels like to be loved.

  9. 7. Life Without You

    This poem is dedicated to my husband who is miles away from me. Life without him makes me sad always. The only way for us to meet is through skyping. That makes me miss him even more like crazy. Love him so very much.

    Poem About Feeling Sad Missing Husband Who Is Away

    I'm sad and feeling blue
    Doing nothing but thinking of you.
    I hope you can feel it too
    'Cause I'm getting crazy; don't know what to do.

    You're there and I'm here.
    Year of not seeing each other,
    The eagerness to see you goes stronger.
    How long will I wait, another year or longer?

    My heart cries when I see you on the screen,
    For I cannot touch you or kiss you for real.
    This really isn't easy for me,
    But I cannot do anything so I just cry and pray.

    Praying every night you'll come back again.
    Hope God will hear my deep calling,
    If that will happen I will surely be happy.
    No more tears and heartaches, just hugs and kisses.

  10. 8. My Love

    • By Kayle
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2015

    My husband and I met at my high school homecoming dance. He was the DJ that night. I stayed with him the whole time of the dance. Then we went our separate ways. Little did I know that for 3 years from that night he was searching for me. Then one day 3 years after the dance, I went to a friend's party, and to my surprise, he was there! We have not been apart since. I love him with all my heart, and even after 14 years of marriage, he is still my one and only love.

    Poem About True Love Lasting

    My love and I
    Met years ago.
    When we first met
    We loved each other so.
    We hold each other in our hearts,
    Which surely means
    We will never part.
    We vowed our love
    To one another,
    Promising to each
    There will be no other.
    We both have had
    Broken hearts in the past,
    But now we both know
    This true love will last.
    Thanks to the Lord above,
    Who made it possible
    To find our true love.
    I am now a free-flying dove
    Because of my husband, my life, MY LOVE...

  11. 9. A Wife's Desire

    This poem was written when my husband and I had a lot of stress in our marriage, between kids and everyday life. I wanted to express to him how much I needed and wanted him. This poem was written to give him an idea of how much he inspires me every day and how important our life together is to me.

    Wife's Love And Need For Her Husband

    I want to be your motivation, inspiration, and everything in between.
    I want to be the reason for your smile, the one who turns your frown upside down.
    I want to be the one you look up to and admire and the one you desire.
    The voice in your heart, not your ear, telling you everything that you need, not want to hear.
    I want to mean enough to you to be your solution to all life's ups and downs.
    I want you to need me every morning when you wake up, during the day when you have had enough.
    I want to feel your excitement to kiss me good night after your day has been so rough.
    I need and want all these things from you because you're the only one who gets me through.
    I love you more and more each day, it's true.
    You have blessed me with a beautiful life, made together by both of us.
    I need all these things from you because my most treasured title is your wife.

    Poem About Husband's Support

    Without you, my dear
    I would not be here
    I would not be the person I am today
    You support me and you love me...

    I feel so unworthy,
    So unlovable because of my past
    But toward me you don't turn your back
    That's what makes me stronger
    To know your love gives me strength.

    To feel it, to see it still, after being tested all the time
    I'm really glad you are mine!
    The persistence you have gives me my answer.
    You love me like nobody else can.

    Unfaltering love
    That is what I have prayed for from above
    You are my saving grace
    Without you, I would be out of place.

    Not in the place I am supposed to be
    The place where I belong:
    Next to you forever,
    And really that's not so long.
    I love you with all my heart.
    I am so glad you put me in your cart!

  14. 12. Contentment

    • By Sherri Wipperman
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2012

    I wrote this poem for my second husband. I found that in my past relationship, my ex-husband was never content...with anything. My husband now makes me feel cherished, prized and that he treasures me as I do him...this is what I know. I hope you find this as well.

    Poem About A Constant Feeling

    Since the day I met you, I have found
    This feeling that abides within.
    A constant that inhabits my heart,
    A knowing that lingers,
    A sense that has been.

    When I awake, it rises with me like the sun.
    When I lie down, it embraces me like a blanket of warmth.
    When I am emotionally entangled, it centers my core.
    When I am soaring above the clouds, it is my wind.
    A constant, a knowing,
    I reside upon this hearth.

    So you ask, "My love, what can this be..."
    "What is this knowing that has so captured thee?"
    Indeed, my response would be to you alone.
    None other would hear these words that I have now sown...

    Gratification of perfected contentment would be my simple reply.
    It is a peace that surpasses the security of a fortress,
    A knowing that your heart is true to me alone,
    A glance at us in the distance that tells me our love shall overcome.

    This is our destiny, our belonging, our fulfillment is to be One.
    For I know that you love me, and that our love is true,
    That no matter the chaos, the excitement, or the fears
    I know you love me as deeply as I love you.

    That knowing grounds me and stabilizes the forces within
    so that the winds of change, demands, and the external climate are quieted
    And all I hear whispering gently, yet ever so softly is the knowing,
    The comfort that you will always be near...

    This, my love, is what I know.

    • By Lisa
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2011

    I have been through a difficult time recently, and my husband has been there every step of the way, and now I have noticed how special he actually is, which inspired me to write this poem.

    Poem About Husband Always Being There

    You are my first thought in the morning,
    My last thought at night.
    For you, I have always been longing.
    You bring me so much delight.
    You have changed my life so much.
    You have a special kiss
    And a special touch.
    Forever we will be like this.
    We met over 8 years ago,
    A brilliant 8 years it has been.
    Oh...where does the time go?
    There was such a big space in between,
    But we came through it.
    Although it always seemed mean,
    It was well worth it.
    Being able to get a cuddle from you
    Makes me so happy and feel wanted.
    Everything you do,
    Some I may take for granted,
    But nothing can be stronger than my love for you.
    What we have is bliss.
    Even though we have ups and downs,
    Nothing can come between this.
    We have our smiles and our frowns,
    But when we kiss and cuddle
    All the frowns seem to drown.

    Father's Day Poem For Husband From Wife

    You've been in our lives for so many seasons.

    Our love affair shall never end,
    And though our love has been through the fire,
    You and only you are my true heart's desire.
    I pray for the man that is paving the way
    For our children each and every day.
    A man who is...
    A man who is...
    It's no wonder why God's on your side.
    He gave you the strength to father a child,
    And even when we don't know what to say,
    Your wisdom consistently saves the day.
    I opened my heart to you, simply to say...

He adopted my children, and after 23 years of marriage, two grandchildren, and one on the way he is still my rock and friend.

    Thank You Poem To Husband

    When you make love to me everything seems right,
    You seem to take my hand and guide me through the night.
    You reach to take my fears and throw them to the past,

    And you standing with me, never shall I be afraid.
    My inner core you've touched, my sanity you've saved.
    But if you feel you can't be strong in all my times of need,
    You've given me a strength, somehow I'll take the lead.

    • By Toni
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2008

    When you love someone so deeply...

    Poem About Your Life Being Touched By Someone

    I don't think you will
    ever fully understand
    how you've touched my life
    and made me who I am.

    I don't think you could ever know
    just how truly special you are,
    that even on the darkest nights
    you are my brightest star.

    I don't think you will ever fully comprehend
    how you've made my dreams come true
    or how you've opened my heart
    to love and the wonders it can do.

    You've allowed me to experience
    something very hard to find:
    unconditional love that exists
    in my body, soul, and mind.

    I don't think you could ever feel
    all the love I have to give,
    and I'm sure you'll never realize
    you've been my will to live.

    You are an amazing person,
    and without you I don't know where I'd be.
    Having you in my life
    completes and fulfills every part of me.

    Poem About Wife's Admiration For Husband

    As I think on the things that I so admire about you,
    I admire:
    Your undoubted love for God,
    Your ability to learn,
    How quickly you can change a negative attribute in yourself into a positive,
    The right choices you make consistently and swiftly
    Without a fleeting thought of the wrong choices as options,
    How you are so tenderly moved by the suffering of another,
    How your sympathy changes into empathy and you become the fulfiller,
    The great teacher and the coach that you have been to myself and to others,
    The humility that quietly adorns you when attacked unjustly
    Or when you have been misunderstood,
    How you show the way by example to our children and grandchildren
    With patience, kindness and love,
    And most of all, your unwavering love for me,
    And so much more.

    As a woman gazes at her husband sleeping, she is filled with love and tenderness for the life they share.

    Poem For Husband From Wife

    Every morning I wake up and see
    The most handsome man lying next to me.
    He's the one I cherish and love,
    A blessing sent from Heaven above.
    I will love him as a faithful wife should
    And do everything for him I could.
    I would let him know every day
    That I love him more than words can say.
    For the two children we have together
    And the love for God in each other,
    It will keep our love for each other strong,
    And the Lord will guide us away from all wrong.
