Diamondz Unlimited

a poem by Ameet Nair

Gone are the days when gold did reign,
In the limelight now do diamonds lay;
This century heralds the diamond as
– The uncrowned ‘KING’ of stones today.

Like a solitary ray from a distant star
The diamond stakes its claim,
On our mind and on our heart
and on our soul to tame.

The diamond stands for life itself
– A symbol of strength and power;
But yet so pure and ever so bright
Like dew on a tender flower.

Of all the visions that have met my eye
None compare to that fulfiling sight –
Of a splendid diamond on a ring
Like a radiant moon at night.

Some hail the diamond for its cut
Some hail it for its shine;
But of all the reasons the masses give
I know the best is mine.

‘Coz, I revere the diamond not for its cut
Nor for its glowing part;
I revere the diamond for its power
– to win a woman’s heart.
