Not Perfect

My words are very simple, and my manner is not grand
My IQ far too normal for the task that is now at hand
My mode of dress no fashion house would ever want to see
My face is plain, a true beauty I will never be
My make-up’s non-existent….my hair and nails a mess
My steps are never graceful, my dancing even less
I’m very far from perfect
I know that to be true
So sometimes I do wonder
What there is I have to offer you
There are many others out there
Fair of face and sharp of mind
With rare and precious qualities a man would love to find
But still you have chosen me
It is me you gave that chance
My days you fill with laughter
My nights with sweet romance
For reasons that I do not understand
You say of all that you do not give a damn
I am very far from perfect, but you take me as I am
You came to me with open arms and slowly drew me out
You showed what the simple joys in life are all about
You taught me love and hope, but still the greatest you’ve achieved
By telling me I am beautiful, you taught me to believe
I am very far from perfect but I am confident and sure
And bold and free and giving like I’ve never been before
So all I have is yours, take all I own and do
My hopes, my fears, my dreams, my tears…myself I give to you
Take all that I am, I was, and all I ever hope to be
For now until forever more I pledge myself to thee
My love, my trust, my loyalty…my friendship, is now all your own
I swear to you, as long as we live you will never be alone
So though I am far from perfect, I know that I will be
The best damn thing in all your life
Just as you are that to me……
