The Love Mine

Rating: 4.6

I went into the love mine
searching for some gold.
Not the type that fools find
thats readily bought and sold,
but one that nurtures the heart,
the one to forever hold.

After searching long, I found a nugget
with a dazzle that's warm and lingers,
alas my full attention was not on the prize

and it slipped right through my fingers.
