Perfect Imperfections

Those perfect imperfections define you,
Making you perfectly special to me.
Annoyances, nuances part of your makeup,
Personal flaws make you flawless to me.
We give each other freedom and space,
Not suffocating or pinning either of us down.
Living independent lives together,
Our unqualified union of genuine love.

On the surface, we appear incompatible,
Nothing binds us closely in common.
Sharing separate interests together,
Different likes, Different dislikes and taste.

My perfect imperfections define me,
Making me perfectly special to you.
Anxieties, frustration, just part of my DNA,
Personal faults make me faultless to you.

Thirty-five years spent together, 
Barely disagreement, quarrel or fight,
Thank God for our perfect imperfections,
We are perfect and so much in love.

I love this, you lightly deliver incredible depths of love and clever deliver the truth about love and imperfections. Two who have long loved, any two, would see the wisdom and accuracy in your wonderful lines of dedication to one, imperfect but loved person. (r u judging the limerick contests? tacky to ask here, but I have wonderment) Really love your poem, Kevin. Poetry hugs ... CayCay

Hi Cay Cay thank you very much for your kind words on my Lumberjack Song and Perfect Imperfections, I enjoyed composing them. Re your Limerick reminder, I must now admit to one of my imperfections, I completely forgot about sponsoring the Limerick contest, I will address this shortly, thanks for letting me know, kindest regards, Kevin xx

Hi Kevin, It would a dull marriage if you guys were more similar. Wishing you more years of wedded bliss. Have a great weekend:-) Alexis

Kevin, I believe that true love is when you know someones flaws and they don't matter... I had the relationship you have with my husband, sadly he passed away but I am sure we would have made it for as many years as you have ~ lovely poem ~

Nice--liken to our polar regions kept separated a world apart but nevertheless serving a duality in the oneness of the world bears upon a unique purpose for all the more reason ~ Aloha always William
