I had a diamond that I carried with me every day
In the pocket of my shirt next to my heart.
I took her out when I felt alone
And squeezed her tightly to chase my thoughts away.
I felt my diamond and knew I was not being logical
Because she is the greatest gift I have ever been given
A piece of heaven I am able to grasp
And to hold whenever I need.
Wednesday it was dark and I was walking outside
Clutching my most beloved stone,
When I stumbled and went to catch myself
I lost her in the night.
I fumbled for a light so that I could see
And frantically searched the empty streets
And to my despair found her in the sewer
Glimmering beneath some common water.
I was horrorfied that she was mixed in with the water
And I let out a panicked scream
And my tears flowed and added to the puddle
As I was trying to reach for her.
But she did not reach back
And the rain added to the puddle
And I could no longer tell where she was
And I felt alone without her.
I walked by the sewer today
And looked desperately for her smiling face
But the backwash from the streets
Or the hand of a stranger
Took my beloved diamond.
Now I am alone again
But she is not where I left her
When I needed her the most.
