You Were Almost Perfect

Updated on November 26, 2012

You were almost perfect

For me

But sometimes in life

And in love

Almost doesn't count

So many flaws can be overlooked

So it is especially painful

When someone is everything

They need to be

Except the one thing

That really matters

      Voted up and beautiful. I agree with Jon. Not always is everything as it seems.

      Now that is a deep thought. What really matters is truly the top of the charts.
