You look at everyone around you and always think that they are prettier than you

You are always worrying about how you look compared to others

But imagine seeing yourself through someone else’s eyes;

What if they thought you were the most beautiful woman they had ever laid eyes on?

Because that is exactly what I think when I look at you

I wish you would believe me when I tell you that you’re beautiful

And that you wouldn’t push me away when I touch your body

I wish you wouldn’t cover your face in vats of make up

Because it’s not Maybelline that made me fall in love with you

You are worth a lot more than the number on the scales

And the Photo-shopped women in magazines that you look up to

When I met you, it felt like all the stars suddenly became aligned

You are the reason that I get out of bed in the morning

You are the reason why I still breathe

So I don’t care that your face is covered in freckles

Or that your teeth are a little crooked

I just wish that you didn’t care either
