Dear Future Husband,
This may sound cliché,
But I’m writing this for a scholarship,
That may just come my way!
I hope that you, of all people,
Are finding the fun in life,
Smiles, laughter, practical jokes,
Amidst the world’s turmoil and strife.
I pray you would fix your eyes,
And that you set your sails,
On a future that is much bigger than you,
And remember: His will prevails.
I hope I meet you wise and well,
But nonetheless contented,
‘Cause once I heard, “A knight in shining armor,
Never had his metal tested.”
All these things I desire for you,
But I’m still not off the hook,
For I must also live and learn,
And give you a reason to look.
Outer beauty doesn’t last,
Inner endures longer,
And I pray this for both you and I,
That our faith in Him grows stronger.
And although this poem was written,
On the off chance of some money,
I hope you have a sense of humor,
That may find this a bit funny!
Much love from the past,
