Not All Of Us Have Jewels To Give.

Not All Of Us Have Jewels To Give.

Poem Courtesy of Thurles Author & Poet, Tom Ryan ©

Not all of us have jewels to give,
Or fine expensive wear,
To one we love beyond all else
With whom our life we share.

Not all of us can dine at night
In elegant hotels,
Or laugh or giggle in delight
At super money deals.

Not all of us can fly abroad
For holidays in the sun,
Nor see the world as one small place
And chat with everyone.

Nature bejewels my lover’s skin,
And elegance her wear,
And when we dine together
Our home has not a peer.

And though we do not fly abroad
For a sojourn in the sun,
We’re just as happy up the road
And bless our days each one.

For we have sunshine all the time,
As joy bejewels the heart.
We drink our health in rich red wine
And never are apart.

There is no more on this good earth,
A laugh a loving kiss,
And sweetest merriment and mirth,
What more can count for bliss?


Tom Ryan “Iona”, Rahealty, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.
