Poem To My Husband

Mikes Cake 80th

Cake by My Mini Cupcakes & Cakes by Denise

 

 

Mike's daughter Laura and son in law John had a party for Mike's 80th Birthday (2018). It was not a surprise because the one thing you do not want to do is surprise an 80 year old man who has had two heart surgeries.

From the first time, I saw your handsome face
I never dreamed on this finger you'd place
A romantic dinner an engagement ring
the tears of joy, then laughter they would bring.

Glasses of rhinestone, my church t-shirt
one time you even wore my black skirt

the time you burnt your face on a piece of cheese
when you told the waiter he said "Really, oh please"

many have seen you in your underwear
and for those who have not, I beg please don't share

the adventures with the neimarks have always been fun
hospital trips included more times than one

hospital visits many gave us a scare
most times your concern was "How is My hair?"
OR THE TIME THE NURSE ASKED "IS THIS YOUR WIFE?"
EDIE THOUGHT THAT WAS THE END OF YOUR LIFE

WHO THOUGHT THAT 10 WEEKS WOULD TURN OUT TO BE
A BOND OF GREAT BROTHERS THANKS TO JOHN CHITTY

THE TIME YOU TOOK THE OFFERING AND DIDN'T REALIZE
DON'T TAP THEM ON THE SHOULDER WAIT TILL THEY OPEN THEIR EYES

BEVERLY WE ALL WONDERED "WHO WAS SHE?"
IS NOW ACTUALLY REAL AND LIVING WITH ME

EMBARRASSING BUSINESS CARDS, OUR FAKE BILLBOARD TOO
FOR YEARS I TRIED TO HIDE THE BIG PICTURE FROM YOU

THE TIMES FISHING WITH MITCH AND JOHN, OUR WISH
PLEASE LET MIKEY CATCH AT LEAST ONE FISH

WE NEVER DID GET TO SEE JOHN DANCE
THE CHRISTMAS YOU BOUGHT HIM MC HAMMER PANTS

FAMILY TRIPS HAVE BEEN SO MUCH FUN
BUT THERE ARE TOO MANY I COULD NOT PICK JUST ONE
TRIPS TO ST. MARTIN, ORLANDO, KEY WEST
EACH ONE WAS SPECIAL, THEY ALL WERE THE BEST

MEMORIES WITH LOVED ONES, NO LONGER HERE
WILL BE TREASURED AND REMEMBERED YEAR AFTER YEAR

YOU'RE THE BEST HUSBAND, FATHER, POPPY AND FRIEND
NOW IT'S TIME FOR THIS POEM TO END

FAMILY, OLD FRIENDS, NEW FRIENDS TOO
THE MAIN DENOMINATOR HERE "WE ALL LOVE YOU"

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
