Oh, to be flawless to you,
Without blemish to you,
Without fault to you,
The one whom I love
When you gaze upon me,
Beloved, what do you see?
Only my brokenness
Only my imperfection
Only my flaws
Only my faults?
Is that why I am not enough?
I will never be enough?
Always inadequate to you?

But my beloved
You too are flawed
You too are stained
You too are fallible
But you will always be enough

See, if only we could be perfect
But perfection is not ours
Perfection will never be ours
And you are perfect to me
In your imperfection
Would that I too could
Be perfect to you
In my imperfection
Because you see, my darling
Perfection is not ours!
