Ruby and Sapphire

z

When we first met

Your eyes were like Sapphires

Dull with worry

Then sparkling with joy

When I agreed to help you.

So for a few days

Sapphires haunted my sleep.

z

I knew I would do anything

To see that sparkle again.

z

When next we met

Your eyes were Ruby.

Shielded from me

And the rest of the world.

And for a time

Ruby and Sapphire

Mingled in my dreams.

z

That light

That sparkle

The joy whenever you saw me.

I did not recognize your eyes

But I recognized that light.

z

And I would do anything

To see that sparkle again.

z

And then I discovered that

Ruby and Sapphire

Were one and the same

And I must admit

I was relieved.

z

And I remember

That time

When you looked at me

With that beloved sparkle

And said

"I love your Sapphire eyes."
