To my daughter's roomie, Ricki:

I love you more than gummy bears, than peaches and a plum,
Than chocolate hearts and cherry tarts and berry bubble-gum.

You're so sweet and talented, you've got some super riffs,
Your cello tunes and vocal swoons give all your friends a lift.

You make my daughter laugh and sing, act goofy, cool, and cheery,
You give her unicorns to squeeze and wake her when she's bleary.

You're a special gal whose heart is full and giving of all bliss,

I'm thankful that you two are friends and I'm sending you a kiss!

Happy Valentine's Day, Ricki!

Love, Mrs. C. -- XO!
