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 rides 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, both shine and give refraction,
So you may be both source of light and jewel.
Have each the strength to translate into action
A love that is both sparkling fire and fuel.
When two are one the sun and jewel can play:
Now each heart will the other's light display.
