Ode to Mr. Legs

I’m so very grateful for my loving husband.  He takes good care of himself and is the picture of physically fit.  I appreciate all of the parts that  make him who he is, but I have a growing appreciation for his ability to do what I cannot, so I lovingly call him Mr. Legs here.  There’s no way to thank him enough, but can offer this little tribute to him.


Ripples of muscle

Sinewy strength

Just the right width

And perfect in length.

You exercise them

And that gives them great tone

They run you around

And they bring you back home.


They carry you up

To the top stair of the flight

They bend to bring you

Down to my height.

They bring you to me

And they take me away

Without them neither of us

would get through the day.


Your beautiful legs

So fit and so strong

To both of us now

Do they belong.

Take care of them please

I love them a ton

I’m grateful  for both

And I cherish each one.

  1. This brought a tear to my eye; I “have” one such husband too. 😊 I know many who haven’t got this support; I am blessed and your tender words tell me you are too.

    Beautiful tribute to your beloved! 🙂

  3. Beautiful! I feel the same way. We can’t thank them enough.

  4. Estizer, I’ve enjoyed reading about your helpful guy too.
