We Cherish Them

A gift of heaven from the blue
A rose, an iris and orchid too.
Patient, loving, kind, and giving;
The cradle of life. The joy of living.

A dazzling ray and twinkling star.
A guiding light that shines afar.
Love, smiles, heartbreak and tears,
She's seen it all throughout the years,

A treasure, a jewel, a star, a gem.
And this is why we treasure them.
