I love the way you smile

the way you squint your eyes when you laugh

 

I love the way you dance

when no one’s around

 

I love the way you talk about things you love the books you’ve read

the songs you’ve heard

 

I love the way you stare at stars

and talk to flowers

the way you sing even if it is out of sync

 

I love how you’ve taken lessons from the past

and refuse to dwell in it

 

I love that you are a little wise

and a lot more crazy

a little savage and a lot more empathetic

 

I know you hate your nose

and your fat arms

I know you’re tired of people telling you

to lose weight or to gain some more

because nothing ever satisfies them

I know you wished you had

a better face and a flat stomach

 

I know all of it.

all of your flaws and edges.

and let me tell you:

you’re lovely. for all that you are.

 

you’re perfectly imperfect.

and I love you.
