I'm as happy as I can be

And why not when I'm in love with me?

I kiss the mirror every morn

And bless the day that I was born..


I see no worrying imperfection

In my day to day reflection

My words to me provide elation

In self-regarding conversation.


When I die I'll regret that its terms

Offer the unwanted company of worms

But underground in ashes I'll be

Content and still in love with me!!
