Perfect The Way You Are (Poetry)

Updated on June 29, 2012

It’s a crying shame

You don’t know how perfect you are.

Even if I could take these two hands

Reach out into the air,

Take every ounce of beauty

And every ounce of perfection

Mold them together

Into the most perfect woman

Any man could ever imagine.

That woman wouldn’t come close

To the woman that is you.

Your smile is like a work of art

That even the most skilled painter

Who dedicated his whole life

To learning his craft

Still wouldn’t be able to achieve.

Forgive me if I raise my voice

I just can’t stand here

And watch you

Sit in from of that mirror anymore.

How could you think

That there is even one detail

That is out of place

On that face

I dream about every night.

My world would be

A darker place

If I could not wake up

Every morning

And see and angel by my side

So put down that lipstick

Move away from that mascara

Don’t waste another minute

Looking for imperfection

In God’s perfection.

You are perfect

Just the way you are.

      What beautiful words for your special loved one. There's nothing more special that a man can do for his love than to show appreciation for even the "little things" and to show he notices it all. I believe this is even more valued than flowers, chocolate, or perfume.

      What a beautiful tribute to the one you love. Thanks for shaing. Your fiancé is fortunate to have you tell her such things.

      Blond Logic- sometimes guys have a lot going on in their brains, and sentiments like this are hard to express. Sometimes we just take it for granted that you ladies know that we feel this way.

      Just what every woman wants, need to hear, so tender so very beautiful. You're a wonderful romantic, this world needs more.

      I agree with kj Force.

      Some women need to be reminded they are perfect just the way they are. No one wants a world full of clones.

      Imagine starting each day with the words, "Good morning, gorgeous."

      If only more men like you thought like this, then women would feel a lot better about themselves. Voted up and awesome, Joyce.

      Phillydreamer..don't know if this was a tribute to wife,lover,daughter..but if more men would express in words this sentiment..girls/women would grow up feeling better about themselves. With all the hoop-la of celebs and media playing up plastic surgery, young girls/women are becoming so aware of the physical aspects..when it is the " mindset" that should be loved...thank you for the poem, it is lovely ....thumbs up..have a great week-end
