Precious Gem

Written by: Lee Ramage

They said you were worthless, no better than coal, I would not be jaded, I could feel your soul. The diamond in your eyes, lights up my day, Your ruby lips brush my face and wipe my tears away. Shoulders strong as granite you shield my pain, An embracing heart of gold for me to sustain. You’re my amethyst that brings me the sweetest of dreams, Creativity is roused by your amber gaze, so it seems, As rare as alexandrite, I found you, you are mine. Coal or diamond, my precious gem a most wonderful design.
*Dedicated to my husband on our 29th Wedding Anniversary.
