The gem

I sit there staring at the most beautiful gem

I have ever seen and the want to have it is so strong

It could knock me off my feet.

The color so bright it shines just like the sun, sometimes so bright it blinds you for a moment.

But, the beauty is so unreal it’s scary something so great could be so real and so close to being mine.

It doesn’t cost money or trading things to get, it just takes a bit of faith and hope and a little movement with  your nose.

Close your eyes and reach out and the gem would be mine.

For the gem was never a piece of treasure but your heart inside of you and I worked hard to make sure it was mine to protect and love for a lifetime.
