Not Perfection’s Daughter


Passionate lover

Alert and in shape

Affectionate mother

I carry my babies gently

Hold me now and see what you’ve got

I’m trying to be sublime, but I’m not


I forget the simple things to do

But I do remember when you want me to

I appreciate all the good in you

You remind me when I fail to


when you know you owe someone dear an apology

You will usually handle it your way

when you notice your shirt is on backwards by the end of day

You will usually make it anyway

when you feel like biting your tongue for what you just said

I'm not perfection's daughter


Silence surrounds you

I know what’s at heart

The music is in you

I’ll find your guitar and you will

Play, the chords are right in your hand

I’ll make this song with you, ‘cause we can


Still I forget the simple things to do

But I do remember when you want me to

I appreciate all the good in you

You remind me when I fail to


when you know you owe someone dear an apology

You will usually handle it your way

when you notice your shirt is on backwards by the end of day

You will usually make it anyway

when you feel like biting your tongue for what you just said

when a critical word becomes insult of your vanity

I'm not perfection's daughter
