I'm sorry I'm Not Perfect

Please remember when youíre angry with me
I am not perfect
I am human
I forget things
Like bringing a new jug of milk out
Or wiping instead of washing a dish
Because itís late and I didnít want to wake you
I donít see things the way you do
I look at the big picture
I donít see if there are crumbs on my chair
I see that the whole room looks nice
I try every day to help you
I offer to chop the vegetables for the stew
I offer to bring you drinks from the back
I try to figure out nights I can cook for the family
So that you have a break
Because I know youíre tired
I know youíre getting old
I know there are days when you donít feel good
And I try to be there for you
To help you
With anything
But you have to let me
And if I forget something now and then
Just remember
I am not perfect
I am human
Just like you
