The Pearl

Glistening in the dark, I shimmer in the twilight                                                                 
Waiting for someone to bring me to the shore                                                                   
The waves of the ocean toss me by and by                                                                        
But I don't complain anymore                                                                                          
I have realized my worth, what I'm meant to be                                                                
So I wait patiently in the waves                                                                                        
I'm glad that people love me and call me a gem                                                                
So I wait in the ocean till the dawn breaks                                                                        
When the waves wash me on the shore, I know that I'm back home                                    
Soon a boy picks me up from amongst the thousand stones                                               
He looks at me lovingly and takes me to his home                                                             
He puts me down near the mirror, I look at myself and smile                                              
I look at the reflection of the pearl, luminous as the light...
