The Most Precious Thing

I’ve held gold and silver,
Diamonds and pearls in these palms.
But the most precious thing
I ever held in these arms is you.

I’ve touched silk and flowers,
Flames and waves with these palms.
But they all touched my skin,
None touched my soul like you.

You don’t know what I went through,
All those days I waited for you.
I waited to see that smile –
The most precious thing I’ll ever see.
The only thing I’ll ever need.
