A Birthday Gift

I thought and pondered about this token.
What would be the best?
No amount of funds is too great
to show you the immense amount
of devotion I have for you.

No matter how hard I did consider
I cannot conceive of the perfect souvenir
to express my adoration to you.

I have scanned the isles,
flipped pages,
and clicked the mouse,
to no avail.
None were just right for my beloved.

But once I stopped pursuing it,
a thought did occur.
I've possessed it all along.
My birthday gift to you
is this string of words
I have thrown together and Me.
