Sentimental Value - Poem by Ana Monnar

Comes in a pair; glitters, sparkles, shines
They are elegant and valuable
Priceless in more than one way
In addition - light and very comfortable

Sentimental value is evident and clear
No money in the world can replace them
They are a lady's best friend
Precious beauty quite a gem

Pair of diamond earrings; so special to me
One diamond was a gift from my husband
Other diamond was matched by my father
Equally translucent as a tear gland

Both exceptional men are now in Heaven
Dad died nine years ago; soon it will be
Memories from both will last forever
My husband died this February

Ana Monnar

In loving memory to my father 1914-1996
and my late husband 1924-2005

    Ana -

    The men in our lives show their love in many ways, precious jewels are a form of protecting you even after they are gone from us. As I look upon each jewel my father and previous loves have given me, all those beautiful memories come rushing back.

    Thank you for sharing -
