My Perfect Work Of Art - Poem by Joe L. McKnight

I found the perfect work of art
She was so pretty and very smart
And when I first saw her she really won my heart! I have painted many portraits and carved a few
But, none turn out as lovely as you. A canvas can bring out beauty of one's face
But it can never take your place The beauty of your inner soul is so revealing
That's what makes you so appealing And thinking of all your goodness that comes from your heart
You will always be my work of art
