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.
