Dwarf of a Life

Yes, love,
I should be
better than I am
I should smile
more often than I do
I should go out
pinch at life a little
be less of a nimbus cloud

But, love,
I am not
better than I am

So, love, agreed;
you choose well
for yourself to leave
with me, life is only a dwarf
you deserve better
and will get much better

But, love,
I had hoped
you would be
what I do
with my
dwarf of a life
