Jewels are cut from more than precious stone.
A life, too, is cut to catch the light.
No beauty is refracted when a lone,
Isolated stranger walks the night.
Can you be jewels to each other's sun?
Each needs a light to shine upon the heart,
Awakening the loveliness that one
Never could reveal if still apart.
Do, then, give both sunlight and refraction,
So you may be at once both light and jewel.
Having made your mutual attraction
Attain a glow no single source could fuel.
When two are one, both are at once in play:
Now each heart will the other's light display.
