Just the Way You Are...

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

I love you just the way you are
Curly hair and button nose
You're my little star.
Twinkle twinkle and burn bright
If you're not the best it will be all right
But it will sure help if you are.
Be number one perfect outshine the rest in the sky
My little one you may as well try,
And be mama's bright and shining star
But don't worry 'cause I'll still love you
Just the way you are.

I love you just the way you are,
Sweet lips and soft skin
Like a movie star.
And if you wanna take things slow, that's okay with me
But I have my dady's car.
I know of a place that's not too far
Where we can set our love free.
But if not, I'll still love you just the way you are.

I love you just the way you are,
Pretty face, white lace, dazzling as a star.
But please don't get too fat
Or speak out of turn
And tone down how brightly you burn.
It's better to fade back into the sky
When you are living a lie
But I do love you just the way you are
As long as I can put you in my pocket
My secret wishing star.
I knew I would love true
If I could change everything about you
And continue loving you
Just the way you are.

I love me just the way I are.
It is true that I am still beautiful,
This lost, little, lonely star
And I have come so very far.
To see myself twinkle
To see myself burn
To see myself on fire
To have it squander on what others' desire.
I want to shine for that is the calling of a star.

And I love me just the way I are.

Very nice description of love given but not returned with self affirmation as a result.

Hello,

The poem was better than I thought it would be. I believe the Bruno Mars song is killing your poems vibe, an unfortunate coincidence. Any thought of changing the title?

Actually, I know Timbaland did " just the way I are" I love that song! lol I like your poem too! Ya and I think Bruno Mars has one too! I think it's neat how we all just want someone to accept us for us... pretty universal Very lovely

I suppose it could also be "Little Star" and still have the same integrity...I never thought of the song until you pointed it out Matt. But know it keeps pulsing through my head as I try to read it. :o)
