    I detected a wrinkle…
    All fine lines gone…
    I saw a bump…
    A pimple now shown.

    But I love me regardless
    Of the color of my eyes.
    Say you love me…
    Even with my ugly cries.

    I just cut my hair.
    And it really ***** nappy.
    I had a bad day at work…
    And at home I’m feeling sappy.

    Will you comb my hair?
    Even if it’s hard to come through
    Will you cheer me up?
    Take away my color blue.

    I’m not perfect…
    Not looking for imperfection…
    Only just to love you…
    And surely some affection.

    You know…I’m getting fat.
    And I have to buy a whole new size.
    I don’t feel like cooking tonight.
    I hope you’re not wondering why?

    I got a callous on my foot today…
    From wearing those heels…
    Would you sand it away…
    It's starting to peel.

    I love you unconditionally
    As if I loved my self.
    I love you regardless of your imperfection…
    For I love no one else.

    You know…I sometimes snore
    In my sleep,
    And have a tendency to wine.
    And even though I may look bad in the morning
    Will you still tell me I’m fine.

    My perfection lies in the love…
    That I have for you…
    That we share together through and through
    And regardless of my imperfection…
    Regardless of your imperfection…
    As we grow and love each other
    With so much affection.
    The love we share is to the highest perfection
    That anyone could ever know!!!

    Thanks!!!

    I figure...What more can a woman truly ask for and be happy. But a man to love her for who she really is and the other way around.

    Anything she wants!

    A good woman can ask for anything she wants--a bad woman usually gets it--but, it ain't never hers--a good womanasks for what she wants, gets it and is deserving of every **** bit of it--so you go ahead--a good man and a good woman is a good combination--Amun_ra
