You were rare, hard to find
My precious stone, my exquisite gem
Hidden and kept safe
Stored beneath the ground

I could work on you,
Cut, polish you
Into a shape close to perfect,
Just to my liking

But when the distant lightning starts striking,
I will be reminded that

Just holding you in my arms is already a blessing,
And as days go by, you’ll keep undressing,
Revealing more and more of your mysterious charm

And I will not miss the thunder,
Or the brilliant allure from afar

I will not miss out on anything
If I love you

Just the way you are
