Just As You Are

We feel like we should measure up

To find a man or wife.

But that’s just wasted pressure

In this fleeting thing called life.


If you feel like a before photo

You’ll always be my after

The thing which I love most Is

when you burst with happy laughter


I care not if you are squidgy

Nor what the scales say

For you being 2 pounds lighter

Will never make my day


No filter could be better

Than the sunlight on your cheeks

The sparkle in your eyes as we

Both face a brand new week.


And lying down beside you

While we snuggle in the night

You couldn’t be more perfect

I should know, I’m always right.
