Perfect Woman

What makes a woman perfect?
Is it the shape of her hips?
The color of her eyes?
Her alluring smile?
Perhaps
I think perfection lies in another's eyes
The one who sees the invisible
The essence beyond the physical 
Words spoken, subtle movements
Stories revealed, dreams being lived
Private laughter, not so hidden passion
Mind body connection, experiential perfection. 

See above for entry to the Perfect Woman Contest.
I had more to say so I could not stop at 12 lines.

Being seen, understood
Feeling beautiful
Total surrender
Each woman perfect in her imperfection
Confident or shy the apple of someone's eye
I have a special gift
I see perfect women all around
Not one is the same
Each one unique
So many fail to see
The potential of them
The perfection within
If only they could see
Please look through my eyes
Please see what I see

    oh, so THIS is the one? Good , very good. I know exactly how you feel about the line length. There have been a few times I wanted so badly to enter my FULL poem and I had to cut it short for a contest. But what can ya do?? I guess add to it when the contest is over! So many good entries in this contest, how will he ever decide??
