Juste moi
Just me (translation)

You have dreamt of an ideal woman
You revealed me
You looked at me like no one had done before
Thanks to you I have felt beautiful
Thanks to you I have felt like a woman
Thanks to you I trusted your arms
Thanks to you I came close to you
You saw me beautiful, you saw me as a woman
You desired me, you told me
But what about me ?
I was just "me"

Unconditional love, perfect love
The love you were looking for
I have sensed your quest for love and tenderness
You surprised me, you seduced me
But I did not want to see your fragility
I did not see your thirst for infinity
How can I compete with perfection
How can I reach the absolute you are dreaming of ?
How can I be this fantasy, this ideal ?
I am not perfect
I am just "me"
Me

I love you with my clumsiness
I love you with my fears
I love you with my terrors
I love you with my mistakes
I love you for your mistakes
I love you for all the qualities you have,
the qualities I am discovering within you
I love you with all my soul
I love you with all my body
I love you from far away, timidly, impudently,secretly

I am not perfect
I am not the one who made you
I am not that monster
I am not that girl who will never be
I am not
And still, I am so many mysteries
I am just "me"

Juste moi (original version)

Tu avais rêvé d'une femme idéale
Tu m'as révélée,
Tu m'as regardée comme aucun autre avant ne l'avait fait.
Grâce à toi je me suis sentie belle
Grâce à toi je me suis sentie femme
Grâce à toi je me suis confiée à tes bras
Grâce à toi je me suis serrée contre toi
Tu m'as vue belle, tu m'as vue femme
Tu as eu du désir pour moi, tu me l'as dit.
Mais moi, je n'étais que moi

J'ai senti ta quête d'amour et de tendresse
Tu m'as étonnée, tu m'as séduite
Je n'ai pas voulu voir ta fragilité
Je n'ai pas vu ta soif d'absolu.
Amour inconditionnel, amour parfait
Celui que tu cherchais
Comment rivaliser avec la perfection ?
Comment atteindre l'absolu dont tu rêves ?
Comment être cette chimère, cet idéal ?
Je ne suis pas parfaite.
Je suis juste moi
Moi

Je t'aime avec maladresse
Je t'aime avec mes peurs
Je t'aime avec mes terreurs
Je t'aime avec mes erreurs
Je t'aime pour tes erreurs
Je t'aime pour ces qualités que je découvre chez toi
Je t'aime de toute mon âme
Je t'aime de tout mon corps
Je t'aime de loin, timidement, effrontément, secrètement

Je ne suis pas parfaite
Je ne suis pas celle qui t'a faite
Je ne suis pas ce monstre
Je ne suis pas celle qui ne sera jamais
Je ne suis pas
Et je suis tant de mystères pourtant

Je suis juste moi.

Is there a language more beautiful than French? I haven't heard it.

Caro, your poem is beautiful, true and heartfelt, even in English.

Beautiful in any language. You have no idea how close to home that hits to me. I always tell my love "I'm just me". The way he views me seems like he's talking about someone else, not me.. I am not perfect. I am not this beautiful person he describes. Could I be..? What does he see in me that I for some reason cannot. The whole peom meant so much to me.. Like you were inside my head.. Thank you..

My pleasure \:\) !!!
I feel so powerless most of the time, powerless to support him the way he needs to be supported, powerless to be myself by his side, powerless to change what's gone wrong between us.

Thanks a lot! Now I'm crying at work!

This is very very painful for me to read and a bit of an eye opener too, I think many of us encounter the same things in relationships
