Oh Emerald, What a rare gem you are

A rare gem you are,
Even the stars wonder what you are,
As priceless as your name,
Yet you don't struggle for fame,
In the hands of the poor you make him rich,
Not everyone can stretch out for your reach,
People who see you as a mere stone,
Are the ones who miss what you can bestow,
Oh Emerald, what a rare gem you are!!!

Kola lasts in the mouth of those who knows it value,
So you have dwelt with those who know your value,
You like being private, hence the diamond thinks it alone can vibrate,
A few can sing of your awe,
But I can write of your all,
For I have been influenced by your touch,
Your gentle, calm light has engulfed me like a pouch.
Oh Emerald, what a rare gem you are!!!

I held on to you and you took me onshore,
I swam against the tides even when hopes were unsure,
You are the little rock that gave me a purpose,
Hold on to me you said or drown alone I suppose,
My last stone slipped off my grip,
There you came,gave me support lest I trip,
Now I'm standing head high,
Because I have you held high.
Oh Emerald, what a rare gem you are!!!
