Around her neck the heart would lay
gold, with rubies shining bright
a gift from her love on Valentine's Day
she never even took it off at night

She wore the necklace with pride and love
rising, falling, with every breath
now it is in my treasure trove
where I put it after her death

Inside a box on velvet red
old, with rubies all aglow
the necklace now is mine instead
given by Mother long ago
