All About the Ring

Beauty that shines like the stars in heaven
Sensual comfort fit
Wrapped neatly around your finger
How many diamonds does it have?
Is the clarity bad?
Does it outshine the moon?
Can it be seen across the vast seas?
Will it bring you contentment?
The larger the more happiness promised
Is your love measured by how massive the stone is?
Is your heart so shallow that the only thing you
Conceive is the price tag hanging from it
What happens if it’s lost or stolen?
Will your love suddenly fade away?
How much more do you treasure
The superficial piece of happily ever after
What if there was no ring presented to you
Would your love suddenly get amnesia
Is it more important than the heart that’s
Offering you a spiritual connection
In the end it’s been all about the ring
Not what it should stand for
