I’m not perfect and I know it.
You’re practically perfect in every way (like Mary Poppins)
We’ll never be perfect together either (at least I won’t be)
But if I can make you laugh at least once in a while
(hopefully much more often than that)
with my stupid jokes, cause we both know
it’s all in the delivery…
You’ll smile at me and melt me like only you can
Life will be good.
If I can make you think twice
(or if you’ll at least you pretend to listen to me)
I’d be happy.
I’m not shy about most things, including,
All I ask is you hold me and make me feel safe
Because that’s all I really need.
Is to feel safe, loved and accepted, for me.
Even when I sound like this guy
I’ll quote random books, sometimes even poetry
(probably badly), but hopefully you’ll laugh.
But I’ll be thinking about you constantly
And I’ll give you the only part of me
that you could break.
My heart and I don’t give that easily.
It’s taped, glued and held together with spit.
So please be gentle with it.
Smile at me when I make you happy
Only you know the smile…
The one I can actually hear
when you’re far and I’m near.
Yell at me when I make you mad,
Get it all out; tell me I’m a damn fool.
But please don’t be cruel.
It’s ok, everyone gets mad
And I’ll deserve it (even if I don’t)
It’s ok, because it’s you.
When you’re done, I’ll hug you tight
Say I’m sorry…
Because the only makeup on you I want to muss
Is your lipstick (never your mascara)
(I’ll kiss you right after you apply and fuss)
Sorry, but I’ll always think it’s kind of funny…
Miss me when I’m not there
Knowing I miss you…wishing I was with you
Knowing the hardest part is through
Because I only want to be with you
Making you laugh until God Himself
Takes my breath back.
But I’d still die with a smile
And a tear in my eye
Because you’ll be there with me.
