The Ring - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

The day I got your heart in my hand
So secured I have felt since
Like the diamond on the ring
That glitters and amuses
You are a wonder
Forever a treasure that
Cherishes every moment
Of my being
That a thousand storms
Will not wash away
Symbol of a million convictions
The ring that has gone
Through spring, summer,
Autumn and winter
Days of tears and days
Of smiles
Every of our shared emotions
Encapsulated in this little
Round thing that has come
To mean a great many things!
