the blue jewel with golden flare
is my best friend, always there
puts a smile on my face
puts a twinkle in my eye
shines brightly in God's light
she is beautiful in His sight
all the roughness is still being chipped away by age
but she will be the most fairest jewel ever made
the caring and love of those around her
will constantly reshape and rebuff the curves
bringing out the inner beauty through the roughness
and she will someday shine forth with extreme brightness
