When A Man Loves a Woman

I’ve been married for over 25 years and yet my husband never ceases to amaze me. To show me how much he loves me, he stopped by my work today with beautiful flowers and a card that spoke of his love for me. That’s a good man.

I’ve learned a few things in the last 28 years together and not just from my personal relationship with Tom, but also from observations of others.

When a man loves a woman there isn’t anything he won’t do for her, even if he thinks she’s wrong. He’ll sacrifice his own happiness to protect her and alleviate her fears. He’ll forgive her even when she doesn’t ask for it. He’ll look for little ways to make her happy. He’ll buy things he can’t afford simply just to see her look of surprise. He’ll give up what he must to save her in her hour of need. Across a crowded room he’ll speak volumes without saying a work. A good man is hard to find, so if you find yourself a good man take this little bit of advice – don’t ever, ever let him go.

When I call my husband’s cell a couple of lines from this song plays. I found the lyrics, enjoy

When a man loves a woman
Can't keep his mind on nothin' else
He'd trade the world
For a good thing he's found
If she is bad, he can't see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend if he puts her down

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comforts
And sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way
It ought to be

When a man loves a woman
give you everything I've got (yeah)

Trying to hold on
To your precious love
Baby please don't treat me bad

When a man loves a woman
Deep down in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she is playing him for a fool
He's the last one to know
Loving eyes can never see

Yes when a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels
'Cause baby, baby, baby I am a man
