I have two yellow bracelets
One falls loosely over the wrist
Big yellow crystals, in a gold band
The other is a clasp
Smaller stones – yellow crystals, embedded in
Precious! Both! They lie in an ornate box –
Two pairs of earrings, sit with those bracelets
In a ring of yellow sapphire stones.
Why two you ask?
I say, ”Coz, they were meant for two-
One was hers, the other was mine
‘Twas a gift from me to her –
For she liked yellow
And I did so too
But then she left
And left it all behind
Lying in the ornate box-
Two yellow bracelets
And two pairs of earrings
Freshwater pearls in a ring of yellow sapphire stones
I had gifted my mom the bracelet with the bigger crystals. It lies with my own in my jewelry box – and serves as a constant reminder that we don’t take anything with us when we leave this realm to go in to the next -as much as we love something or even if it is given to us by someone who truly loves us. At the end, they’re just add-ons that we leave behind. Reminds me of the below words from the Bible and reminds me that I must focus on what truly matters – making beautiful memories and having experiences.
