The Pearl

My heart silently prayed to God 
To turn me into a pink pearl unflawed
So when he comes in his perfect boat
He’d pick me up and lay me in his coat
And put me on a fine gold ring
And let me on his finger cling
He would then feel pride when all would say
How pretty his pearl shines this day
So small, so smooth, so full of love
So lonely lying in this golden cove
