Loveably Imperfect

Please don’t be perfect
Or live up to a false ideal,
I love you just as you are,
Perfectly imperfect and real.

I love your messy ways
And the bumps on your head,
And how you laugh from
Something funny you said.

I love your gentle tears,
And your childlike heart
Please never give that in,
For a perfect fresh start.

You are just as you are –
Tender bruises and all,
So please never change
Or make yourself small.

You are quirky and weird
And wonderfully strange,
Why dim your inner light
By wanting to change?

Don’t try and be ‘perfect’ –
That’ll be an unbearable bore,
You are loveably imperfect
And that’s why I do adore.
