In our Human Sexuality and Christianity class, we listened to Proverbs 31, and heard an Ode to a Good Wife. We were asked to write an ode of our own – I wrote an ode to my hunnyfish.
There are many who would look upon me
And strong willed closed offedness is all they’d see
You took the time to know me well
And it’s an honor to be able to tell
The whole world how good you have been in this thing
That for so many would start with a ring
Your patience in times when I don’t deserve it
Shows your kindness, your wisdom, your merit
You care for your children with a love so grand
Sometimes I go crazy and want a large clan
You accept me for me even when I am lost
You fix things that are broken and lower our cost
Of living you make things a joy with your laughter
When I thought of husbands, you’re what I sought after
Without even knowing such a man existed
Who worries not about gender roles being lifted
Equality in importance you think of us both
It makes me grateful that we took the oath
To love one another until one of us dies
Until that sad moment, I will be by your side.
I’m grateful God gave me a man such as you
And I hope that I can be half as good to you.
