 My today's thoughts




These pearls were the gift he gave me
for our wedding day

A gift of love to wear on the special days of our life
Beautiful iridescence luster in hue with a creamy sheen

Around my neck this beautiful strand
glowed rich in the candle light as he placed his ring on my finger

Many times over the year I wore my pearls with love
treasuring them as a special gift from above

The longer I keep them the richer their luster grows
I never envisioned that I someday would walk this lonely road

I know these pearls can not feel nor do they see
Nevertheless they mean the world to me

I wore them last when we laid my love to rest
The dress I wore was the one he loved me in the best

I feel his nearness as I hold them to my cheek
How I long for his touch and once more to hear him speak

My love gave these pearls to me so long ago
Like these pearls my love for him still glows

How I long to feel your nearness and let your breath mingle with mine.
