Looking in the mirror,
Canít tell what she sees in me
Though I try to understand,
I still find it hard to believe
That she lays down her trust,
And opens up her heart
Though I know not why
I have someone pretty, sweet and smart

Iíll never lose my imperfections,
I might even gain a few
But because she loves me,
Iíll love her that way too
And I, with all my imperfections,
Of body, mind and soul,
Still receive a forgiving love
That will be there when I grow old

I want to see as she does,
To feel as she does,
To find out why she loves me;
Loves me just because

JML, just being yourself is all any one can ask for! This is so sweet. Should be a Valentine's Day Card!   -SEA

Great poem, JML - Women are incredible creatures for their capacity to love us despite the unbelievably rough edges.  I will never cease to marvel at the gift God gave this world when He created Woman.

That is a great poem.  There is a girl that I am trying to get to look at me in the very same way.  I wish she would.  Who ever your girl is, give it to her.  She will melt

"you can always tell a real friend: when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job."~Laurence J. Peter
I think the same can be said for love, it looks beyond the little imerfections we all have.
