A Heart Shaped Stone

Here I am just as you found me
A stone shaped like a heart will be
Once where you stumbled upon

Unlike you I will always be here
Forever my dear I am near
Because I am just a stone

It was such a pure delight
When you held me so tight
In your grasp I became love

After all the leaves turn gold
When at last we became old
I was left just as you found me

About this poem:
We are not made immortal and maybe neither is a stone.....unless it is a beautiful gemstone......and it would surely outlive us.......and still be held tight, adored, and loved by whoever treasures it.

A stone like many other objects can bring back memories if they were part of an experience shared by two or more people.

Sweet but sad too for it only can feel or know love when held. And it is left alone in the end like some people.

Ami, Yes...... we tend to value more what something is made out of then we do what shape it valuing money more than where I was going with this one......I have always felt lucky just finding a little stone shaped like a heart.....just by nature alone......
