Words are never sufficient to unravel the human heart — To dissect faith, hope, and love and speak of what they mean.
No writer; no poet has ever succeeded in capturing these elusive threads of light, but rather must settle for drawing a rough sketch of what sits plainly in front of them. And although beautiful and heart-wrenching their depictions may be, how can they possibly stand in the face of reality?
Yet, which other outlet do I have for such emotions? Such depth and beauty captured in so small a jewel. The pinhead of a star could swallow this whole solar system, yet distance is what lends it the perspective it receives.
I have captured those stars and trapped them inside a colorless stone. It glitters oh so perfectly with borrowed light and returns it in a multitude of color and wonder!
This beauty.. this ring is a reflection of your soul in its purity and life, constantly dancing with the rays of light that pass through its angled skin. I stand in awe of the plethora of sentiment for which it stands as it sits here on my desk, waiting for the opportune time. Thrice now it has been the object of the pen’s mind, and still I do not tire of its presence, although perhaps this community might. It may fall short of the size of a quarter, but its intrinsic value is infinitely more, as the value of your heart cannot even compete on the same plane as this gorgeous halo of light.
I know these words are overused by myself, but sweetheart: I love you. I love you far more than any number of diamond rings such as this and would trade an ocean’s worth of them for the opportunity of a life with you. You have my love, and soon my life to embark upon the journey of a lifetime through God’s beautiful creation.
With all the Love a heart can give,
~The Sunrise Poet
