pearls and gems

day after day
a wise woman
offered me
strings of pearls
and precious gems

ambitious and strong
these were her song
lay when you can
sit as you wish
stand as you must

nothing to say
of any substance
to offer in return
i listened
as best i could

so many jewels
facets that glistened
depth that beckoned
in each tale
of days gone by

still i think
of her from time to time
a glimmer in the night
still i cherish
the pearls and gems
