I like you the best when you are just up in the morning,
Without a hint of makeup, the raw you
Disheveled hair covers your face,
A mesh more complicated than the toughest maze
I wonder how you disentangle them with your fingers,
To pull them back down your shoulders.
Your hands gently rub those half-awake brown eyes,
Give them a glittery shine,
Like a jeweler rubs his gems to polish them fine.
The crimson of your cheeks,
Reflects a glow of unparalleled bright,
A view more serene, more beautiful than twilight.
The little redness of your nose,
Intoxicates me, from head to toes,
Makes me want to give you, a rose.
Your wrinkled t-shirt and pyjama,
Has a seductive appeal, an irresistible aroma,
Even a cocktail dress wouldn’t carry such a charisma.
I like the unkempt you,
The natural you,
And when your soft pink lips call out my name,
I love you!
