Pearl of Great Value
There was a time and a day,
When I said "Take my breath away".
The pain of heart, the hole inside,
Seemed too much for me to hide.
If only I could be laid to rest,
No tears I’d shed or manifest.
Not being able to feel your touch,
A loss so great, I would miss it much.
To think of you my heart does groan,
Even though it feels like stone.
I have cast my tears upon your heart,
Hoping to pierce it like a dart.
A merchant I do want to find,
You’re a pearl – I wish was mine.
These thoughts of mine will always be,
Treasured gems for you to see.
Pablo – January 1995
