Poem About My Wife—If You Want To Write A Poem For Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s Day coming up, you might want to write a poem about your significant other.

Below is a poem I wrote a few years ago about my wife. I think it works well.

You don’t need to be all flowery and mushy—Simply write about the person you know.

My Wife.


With reasonable allowance

For awkward situations

My wife is quite straightforward.


If not always at first

People in time come to realize

The quality of my wife’s advice and skills.


My wife reflects on her personal relationships

And tries to get them right.

My wife reflects on her responsibilities

And tries to be a good person.


A left-handed Jewish woman

My wife has no illusions about what people are

And what they are capable of.

  1. Love and realness. A wonderful tribute. Your wife must have loved it 🙂

  2. I just “stole” this (properly attributed of course)for my wife. Although neither left-handed or Jewish she definatly displays all of the other attributes.
