JUST YOU AND I…

PHOTOS FROM PIXABAY

Engrave my name upon your heart,

Let everyone see what is inside.

But only I would know the depth.

Write a song and dedicate it to me,

The masses would undoubtedly dance,

Till the moon turned pale.

But only I would hear the words.

We’ll stroll along the sandy beach,

Leave your footprints behind mine.

Though crashing waves will surely efface them,

You will always be my guiding light.

As a priceless pearl, embedded in an oyster,

Let this world view our hardened shell.

Reserve this wondrous beauty for us only,

Allow these kindred spirits to ride off into the sunset.

For it is ours to conquer…

BEAUTIFUL PEARL

A PEARL BENEATH THE SEA,
TO ME,
YOU SEE,
WILL SIT ELEGANTLY.
UNIQUE AND OF WONDER,
LODGED INSIDE AN OYSTER.
BE RADIANT AND FREE!
A PEARL BENEATH THE SEA,
TO ME,
YOU SEE,
BIRTHED MIRACULOUSLY.
IT'S ORIGIN IS PURE,
CAN CAPTIVATE TO LURE.
DISTINCTIVE AS CAN BE.

A PEARL BENEATH THE SEA,
TO ME,
YOU SEE,
SPECTACULAR JOURNEY.
HUMBLE AND YET BITSY
BUT GROWS AMAZINGLY.
A RARE GEM OF BEAUTY.
