Should I wait and stare
Ponder your image for awhile
Is it simply impolite or
Are you art to be admired?
You have the ingredients
That make a perfect woman
But is that really possible
Without a perfect man?
Is there such a thing
As perfection as we'd like
Not in this reality, no
It is more than unlikely
Some would be bored
With the thought of perfection
Each day too alike
But believe me, there is
Always more to wonder
You are the proof that there's
Depth that doesn't meet the eye
To know you is to love you
You fill me up with such
Happiness that I cry
There are thoughts up here
In my mind that words are
Inadequate to relay, it's true
In my mind, your beauty so
Infinite beyond the skin
In my mind’s eye so consistently appears
The verse seems out of rhythm
Sometimes, but you can blend the tune
Just when everything seems out of place
You walk in and liven up the room
The eye is so stupid and dumb
There is so much more to see
Just an outer shell is so admired
But for the whole, most don't see
This beauty infinite inside I most desire
This is a fire you've lit inside of me
Once upon a time, I thought one like you
Could only exist as my own fantasy
But it's true, it is, that you are true
You are here, among us,
And I will seem to do any thing
To make you notice me
As awkward and clumsy
As I come off to be
I hope that there is something
That you can love in me
