For Nikki

I searched among the card displays
To see if I could find,
A little something that would say
Just what was on my mind?

However there was not a one
That captured it just right,
For no one else can understand
Just what I’d like to write.

I even find it difficult
To try to write it down,
For how do I portray to you
The love that I have known?

I close my eyes and what I see
Is someone I adore,
A person who is beautiful
Right down into their soul.

Mere words cannot describe
The many qualities you show,
The love and caring nature that
You share with those you know.

Your kind and gentle temperament
Your sweet angelic smile,
Your softly spoken sentiments
That reach across the miles.

Your smile and laugh that sparkle with
The softness of your sighs,
The way your face lights up a room…
That twinkle in your eyes.

The loving gestures through the years
That quickly come to mind,
For always you’ve a gentle word
To calm and soothe I find.

I struggle and I search to try
To find some words anew,
And yet I cannot capture
All the things that make you you.

I shall therefore be satisfied
That you must simply know,
Just how I feel about you
For the words I cannot show.

With all my love for you Nikki
Love, Erin
