Weighing the Unmeasurable

When love is weighed against a precious stone,
The diamond surely earns its flawless boast.
As cruel time eats flesh and powders bone,
The rock retains one form, outlasting most.

While love alone won’t even tip the scale,
The crowning jewels could own the world; 
While faith and loyalty can often fail,
The purity of gems can’t be unfurled.

Keeping love alive is an endeavor,
While a diamond’s luster never teeters.
Everyone knows diamonds are forever
Yet fragility makes love much sweeter.

White diamonds are reduced to common sand
While slipping in between my sweetheart's hands.
