Diamonds, rubies and even gold
valuable stones, so I'm told
those who have them feel quite rich
those who don't declare "life's a bitch"

Such value we place on material things
equating committed love with diamond rings
will a giant stone mean you love more
or turn you into a jewelers whore

love should be priceless and never bought
a true lesson we've all been taught
search the mines, the ground and heaven above
you'll find the rarest gem is unconditional love

Copyright Bob C Shank
if you happen to find the rarest of gems
respect it, cradle it, cherish it and guard it
with all your heart...for you are truly rich

"If I told you my reality, you'd
say I have a great imagination,
If I told you my imagination, you'd
say I've lost touch with reality"-Bob Shank, 2004
