A Pearl in You

A Pearl in You

In a faraway land, a merchant found a precious pearl

He happily sold everything and traveled a long distance

To buy the tiny fruit from a little shell


The shell endured for several years to form the pearl

The beauty resulted from pain by a splinter

Its noble radiance made his heart swirl


He sacrificed everything but gained true satisfaction

Its modest and elegant beauty was priceless

Its long lasting value never saw deterioration


I found a far more valuable pearl shining in pure white

Growing along with your pain, down in your soul

Reflecting the brightest light in your darkest part


Your sympathy, understanding and strength

These are lasting rewards from your struggle

With tears from pain, you hold onto hope and truth
