Beautiful Words

Beautiful words stir my heart. I will recite a lovely poem about the king, for my tongue is like the pen of a skillful poet.


The man of Prayer

The man of Prayer

Dear imperfect husband…

I know that your face is not as handsome as the Hollywood movie stars

But you’ve got the sincere smiles that melt my heart

And eyes so full of love that make me fall in love with you deeper and deeper


Dear imperfect husband…

I know that you don’t have a muscular body

But you’ve got strong knees to kneel down in prayer

And that makes me feel safe and secure beside you


Dear imperfect husband…

I know that you are not as romantic as fairytale romance and love story

But you’ve convinced my heart that you are a faithful man

And that makes me feel peaceful


Dear imperfect husband…

I know that you are not as great as superheroes

But to me you are greater than them

Because you fight for your family


Dear imperfect husband…

Yes, it’s true that you are not perfect…

In fact, nothing is perfect in this imperfect world

But I know that in every imperfection of yours,

You’ve done the best for the sake of my happiness

And I’m forever grateful because of you

His grace has taught me how to love you perfectly


Thank you for all the love and efforts to make me happy

I am such a lucky wife!


With love,

Your proud wife – Sella Irene – Beautiful Words
