“Emeralds”

They are flawless, those two emeralds on which I gaze. I am entranced in their beauty, the vibrant green so clear that my reflection appears. I know that one could not put a monetary value on those emeralds so rare, for they clearly are priceless. I would do anything to attain those emeralds, I would climb the highest mountain, I would swim the deepest ocean, I would travel the world far and wide for just another glimpse of those beautiful emeralds. How could something so beautiful exist? How could I be so lucky to be in the same company as those emeralds? Please be kind, don’t hide those emeralds from me. I promise to never harm those gorgeous emeralds, I will never do anything to those emeralds to make them loose their luster. I am mesmerized by those two extraordinary emeralds. When I gaze upon those emeralds my future seems so clear. I see those emeralds looking at me from behind a veil. I see the reflection of my children in those emeralds. I see myself as a better person in those emeralds, for they are my inspiration. I see myself waking up next to those emeralds for the rest of my days. Even when I am old and gray, I know that those emeralds will still glisten, bright and vibrant and clear. Whenever I stare at those emeralds, I am filled with outstanding jubilation, for I know that those beautiful emeralds shall now and forever be mine.
