A Diamonds Secret

This happened with a girl I dated a while ago.
We knew each other for a long time, 20 years or so.
But growing up together, we never let our emotions show.
So I told her how I felt and she said yeah I know.
We started dating and we had a love that was beginning to grow.
A short while later her ex showed up, his name was Joe.
He bought her a nice diamond ring wrapped up in a bow.
I said I don't mind if you keep it, but he's got to go.
She kept it and wore it, but it started to eat away at me slow.  
A couple weeks later, the temperature got to freezing and below.
While sledding I asked her for a glove, and inside was a shimmering glow.
To this day she still doesn't know, but I buried that ring deep in the snow.  

***For Shani Fassbender's contest, "Tell Me A Secret."***
