Pearls of beauty from the ocean's deep
Timeless gems lying hidden in the watery coves
An enchanting mermaid, does secretly these drops, keep
Her prized jewels in some guarded treasure trove
Gifted to her, perhaps, by her far-off handsome love!
Pearls of love, every bride's cherished dream
Glistening delights on strings, much lovingly worn
Her eyes reflect their soft luster and gleam
Ornaments of purity, on her special day she adorns
Sheer grace and charm, their mystique has borne.
Pearls of wisdom from years of experience
Distilled remains of entire life's ambitions,
Endearing wrinkles on faces with timeless radiance,
An age of viewing the world with known perceptions
Having traversed the road now, overhauling obstructions.
