Loved Flaws

The points in time that remind us we’re loved
Rhymes that repeat but nonetheless are new
Instead of doctor’s hands, sterile and gloved
Unafraid fingers remind us to view
All our flaws and imperfections and spots
Under the true lamp of revealing light
Our mistakes and our errors, all black dots
Seem condemning on canvases of white
In a world of fulls, all our omissions
Are painted over to hide from our peers
But under paint, our failing condition
Wishes deeply for another’s shared tears
The deepest love knows who we truly are
And chooses to care, despite all we mar
