The Gem

You had a diamond, a pearl in your palm.
You let her slip between your open fingertips.
Easily discarding uncaring, doing her harm.
You were blind to the amazing facets of her
charms.
Devotion, loyalty, love and fun, you let fall away.
Never to know, the real value of your loss that
day.
She, with new air to breath and new beginnings
presented;
Open to suggestions and unexpected experiences,
The translucent beauty of the pearl incredibly
increases.
This spectacular gem sparkles and is admired by
others;
This treasure, you so carelessly, casually cast
asunder;
Dwells now contentedly, with reciprocal dreamstogether
with another.
