January 3

There are some things about me
   you should know.
I belch a lot.  Have ugly toes.
I pout when I don't get my way
I talk too much - think I have
        SOMETHING to say.
I have hair growing out my ears and nose.
I laugh at my own jokes.
I bite my nails - and it shows...
So many things, dear you should know...
My dearest darling, I love you so.

I'm told that when I sleep, I snore.
I dread the sound of the closing of a door.
I'm insecure; I worry all the time
That someday you may tire of my rhyme.
And vanish into that God-awful dark -
Because of some insensitive remark
I might have said, by accident,
While feeling overconfident.
Despite these faults
still you should know
My dearest darling, how I love you so.
