Commitment

Real women take their time

Real women hold onto their gold

They spend their days leisurely polishing

They spend their nights caressing the metal in their tender grasp

Real women wait until their gold is buffed, warmed and molded to their liking

As brilliant and as radiant as their sun

As smooth as their complexion

Real women take their time

They examine the man who will be given their treasure

A man who decides not to wear it will soon be forgotten

A man who takes it off in a bar will not be around for long

But the man who wears and cherishes her ring,

The man who keeps her gift shining and in her likeness, perfect and whole,

That man will live close to her heart forever.
