Tonight I look, But can not find
All I need are 6 letters
And they are running through my mind
These 6 letters are a name in my heart
Who letters embed my paper with art
My mind is quicker than my words
It knows what my tongue may not
I may not be the best at this
Because I have never been taught
But these 6 letters are on their way
Starts with a "B" ends in an "A"
Maybe the rest will come to
Hoping that "I" belongs with "U"
Speaking of "I" that is letter three
Maybe you will, belong to me
Three down, three to go
What letters remain?
Only my heart may know
Of the three I need two four and five
And this name has made me feel so alive
If you can become mine
It will fix every scar
Speaking of which
The second is "R"
This darkness is becoming day
And gets clearer,
As I find out the fourth is "A"
So now with only one letter left to show
I hope this is a memorable way of letting you know
That you have brought me joy
And I hope this is not a heartfelt ploy
As I finish drawing ink out of my pen
My heart tells me the fifth is "N"
So now that your name is told
I sit here and wait for the pieces to unfold
So with this name
I smile and say
I am growing to like you
In every way
