My husband is a talented man,
with a great smile and eyes of hazel.
He does his best in all he can,
and often received much appraisal.

He would bring a crowd to tears,
when he was actor many years ago,
other times preying on fears
or impressing a room in his falsetto.

When last he donned a suit,
it was that of someone we know.
It was not some oaf or brute,
but of our dear Romeo!

He has since moved on to other paths,
but his stories always bring many laughs!

Awhhh how sweet of you to write about your husband! I think the number of syllabus in a line could be more consistent, but it's quite straightforward and easily understandable!
