My Husband

I call him the quiet man

this man I call my husband

He is always there

to give me a hand

I wear his golden band

He wears my ring

on his head a silver crown

curls around

He is my king

Through thick & thin

we have gone through together

the good, the bad, rain & sun

whatever the weather

no matter what, or for how long

our love is ever strong

He is my quiet man

until the end of time
