If I could give you diamonds,

For each time you cried for me.

If I could give you Sapphires‘,

For each truth you helped me see.

If I could give you rubies,

For all the heartache you’ve known.

If I could give you pearl’s,

For all the wisdom you show.

Then you would have a treasure

That would mount up to the skies.

That would almost match,

The sparkle in your kind and loving eyes.

But I have no pearls, no rubies,

No sapphires’ or diamonds.

As I’m sure you’re well aware.

So I’ll give you gifts more precious,’

My devotion, my love and care.

In one word, adorable. I usually don't like love poems, even if I did write one. But this was good, it wasn't cheesy or like fake gold, it was great. Keep it up!

In the devil's den i may be, so stab my heart and set me free.

I'm not usually into love poems but this was very very good. It wasnt cheesy and stupid. It was precise and elegant. Nice job.
