I Am His Diamond

From the collapsed gold mine of our love
An opening again has been found
Where trust turned debris of fallen faith
Now stands, diamond strength of renewal and hope

I, the paradox, declared I would love eternally
Washed away, in a sea of doubt and uncertainty 
Dismissed the very essence of my joy
The one who made me to feel like his princess

Gladly now, a fiduciary of his everlasting love
Mistakes polish my experience
No more down the road of doubts 
The most precious diamond in his collection

So my dearest, with you I’ll walk
Hand in hand through all coming situations
Giant steps forward, never to retreat
Love and hope and happiness, just what we seek

    How true! Love is forged in the crucible of uncertainty! What seems mere slag, may turn out to be the prize most rare. It is a matter of minding the temper. BTW, she and I spent the weekend away (our first romantic trip), I may have more trouble summoning a questioning attitude in future poems! Thanks for the words of encouragement! She tells me that he poems won her heart! Go figure!
