When I saw a diamond
yesterday, I saw the fire
which lives in your eyes

I saw the deep blazing
beauty, that often brings
grown men to cry

I felt the pains that
many in life endure,
who suddenly find within
a very deep need…

To have the fire that’s
alive in the diamonds heart
become the one whom will
set their heart free

For in that tiny window
of time I saw something
precious which might even
compare to you

Yet when I saw your
smile as the sun rose
this morning I could no
longer continued with
this sad ruse

For even though the
brilliant flame of a
diamond, for years, will
burn so very bright…

Even its brilliance alone
can never compare to the
radiance that daily fills
your eyes with its exquisite
light.

(1977)
