Whatever can go wrong does go wrong when I’m around.

Every time I try to do something nice, I screw it up.

Like the time I tried to make you breakfast in bed and set fire to the kitchen;

Like the time I tried to run you a nice bubble bath and flooded the house.


But you just smile in the face of my disasters,

Unfazed by the catastrophes that seem to follow me everywhere,

Giving me smiles to let me know that none of it matters,

Giving me hugs to tell me you appreciated the effort in spite of the result.

Every time I think I’ve screwed things up beyond repair you

Reach for my hand, look into my eyes and tell me "there’s no harm done".


Maybe I do screw things up from time to time, but

Every time I look at you I know there’s at least one thing I’ve done right.
