Gems // by Sophie (April 2016)

The golden rays of sun refresh me
And the silver rain is clear
It helps me know that I will have
God so close and near

The diamond stars create my dreams
Of hopes and better tomorrows
The quartz like ice in winter repels
The thoughts of pains and sorrows

The ruby like roses
shimmer in the garden
They help my heart from growing hopeless
they never allow it to harden

All these precious gems
Of nature
Are more valuable than they are considered
So please look to them so that heart and dreams
will never, ever wither.
