I'm no angel
No goddess

I'm no one special at all

I'm not perfect
Not highly skilled
Not even beautiful

I'm not slender
Nor lithe
My hair never ripples in the sunshine

I don't cope with frustration
Not even slightly

And I never know when to speak and when to be still

I can't banish pain
Not even with love

But...

I'm loyal

I give

My capacity for caring is huge

I trust
I listen

I'm fierce when the need arises

And I'm soft
I'm warm

I can comfort with a touch

And though the pain doesn't go, still, it lessens.

I'm no angel at all
And certainly no goddess
Perfection eludes me totally

Except when you look at me
With your heart in your eyes.

There, in that moment,
I'm transformed
into

Someone Wonderful
