With You, I Wear Pearls
Creamy white, luminescent orbs,
perfectly round and flawless
nestle protectively in the satin lined
black velvet box,
sadly banished to their darkened enclosure,
patiently awaiting the next special occasion
to flaunt their splendor.
Why must invaluable treasures
rejoice alone within their
softly padded prison,
when time spent with you
deserves limitless displays
Priceless jewels are the perfect
of what resides in my heart.
These precious gems need hide no more.
I ceremoniously remove the worthless paste
from around my neck
and cheerfully vow forevermore,
with you, I wear pearls!
