A Poem for Niquie
Happy 24th Birthday, Niquie!
When they received their precious gift on February 21st, 1988
The Serpe’s were in heaven; even big brother thought she was great
Dominique Elyse was the name given, as if by the divine
There was no other choice, it was easy to assign
She was adorable and funny right from the start
An instant imprint stamped into everybody’s heart
Stubborn she was, and still remains to this day
The decision of when to talk and walk, would be done in her own way
Her curly hair so light and wild
Fit her perfectly; this spirited child
She was one of the boys, loved to play with her brother
Even though it cost her Tigger, one way or another!
With tons of energy, spunk and fun, everlasting friendships were made
Straight through the move and distance, the true connections stayed
Seventh grade proved a tad difficult-just at the very start
But it took no time at all for Niquie to win over people’s heart
Her love, loyalty and devotion to all of her varied friends
Is reciprocated by the closest, in a circle that never ends
Adored by her Grandparents through thick and through thin
A more captivatingly unique individual there has never been
Hard working, intelligent, and beautiful; she can be intimidating
But for this exquisite entity, a strong soul mate is waiting
Passionate, opinionated, emotional and funny
A smile that lights up a room, making it perpetually sunny
She appreciates nice things, though is not obsessed
For richer or for poorer…She couldn’t care less
Honesty, integrity, loving words and deeds
These are the only treasures that she ever needs
Is she occasionally moody? Absolutely, you bet!
She doesn’t pull any punches, what you see is what you get
All that notwithstanding, from a faux pas she will never hide
Awkward pictures are on display next to those that make us burst with pride
She can be an enigma, our little Niquie Pooh
But our family without this amazing girl simply wouldn’t do
So we celebrate this day saying ‘Happy Birthday Niquie’ as you turn 24
Cause no other girl on the face of this earth could be loved and cherished more!
Happy Birthday, Angel Face!!!
