Heart Is More Precious

Heart Is More Precious

A Poem by Elaini

Diamond is a symbol of love, not love itself.

For me these gifts you sought
But before I would take them
You know that I would not
Trade my heart for your gem

It won’t make me live the age
Or make my blood flow within
It is laid in a golden cage
Wrapped around my skin

Not a gem alone makes me shine
But if your heart instead I kept
I would cherish it like mine
Your diamond I would accept

There is beauty in truth and your expression of true feelings is beautiful.
A poem of sincerity and honesty and kindness. Well done, dear poet.
