An Acrostic

There is something angelic
Each time I look into your eyes,
Reaching deep inside me,
Elevating and liberating my
Spirit, leaving me in
Awe of your grace.

Darling, every time I see you,
You appear to me more
Beautiful and pure than I
Ever imagined,
Vibrant and alive--
Ineffable like the sunlight's
