Affection not perfection

She descended the stairs
Hair matted sleep in her eyes,
Cup of coffee toast and 
marmalade please she cries,

Wearing her baggy cardigan 
Night dress crumpled with stains,
No teeth in her mouth morning breath
Reminders of recently blocked drains,

To say the least she doesn't look 
Her very best,
There again I'm a little shoddy 
In my under pants and string vest,

How we look in the morning 
to others we would not share,
Our love for each other has no 
bounds just shows that we care.

Love is affection not perfection.
