Valentine Hit & Run – Ode to my Sweet & Sassy Husband

Posted on February 12, 2008 in the Inspiration category

Happy Valentine’s Day, my friends! I wrote a Golden Poem for my fabulous hubbie – I submitted it to a poem contest, but, since I haven’t heard anything, I don’t think we won – too bad – I can’t imagine another poem better than one about Rob. I’m sure you will agree. We had a little scare about a week ago…..

This is a story about my husband, my best friend, my heart,
Who is sexy, and funny and much too smart.

Though he’ll deny he’s the most fabulous man in my life,
I say the proudest role I have is being his wife.

It was the morning of Feb 4, at 7:15,
My husband and I could not have forseen.

A potential disaster awaiting us down at the beach,
Thank goodness I was not out of my husband’s reach.

As we walked in the crosswalk on Esplanade & Cliff Drive,
My husband, my protector, took a terrible dive.

When a white car came toward us, a teenage boy behind the wheel,
Who didn’t stop when he saw us, it was all so surreal.

My husband grabbed me, and threw me out of harm’s way,
But the jalopy clipped my husband, on that terrible day.

We went flying, with hot coffee, detox juice and all,
Everything landed on my husband and he broke my fall.

The punk stopped just long enough so I could shout,
“You hit my husband” as I followed him, and shook my finger about.

For there was my sweetheart who had just had a fright,
But he was more worried about me running out of his sight.

He couldn’t protect me if I was too far away,
My love for him grew so much stronger that day.

I’m the luckiest lady to have a husband so great,
But I think we won’t go walking again before eight.

    What a close shave that was! Things like that really make you take stock of things. I am so glad that you both lived to tell the tale!
