Precious – the things we hold dear
Precious – the views to which we adhere
What’s precious to you might not be
A thing that’s held as precious – at all by me
You might object and say “What about jewels?”
But they are oft but commercial tools
When was the last time that you ate
A serving of diamonds on your dinner plate?
So is it life’s luxuries that you covet?
Or are necessities – what you see as above it?
And what about someone – with these things to share?
Now that’s really precious – what you have there!
