She, Bought Her, Own Ring
I walked into the liqueur store, grabbed hold, of, my favorite brand
Walked back, to the check out stand, set my bottle down
Then, this little hand, reached out, heard this tiny voice, ask?, cash or charge?
Upon a tiny finger, I saw the turquoise stone, diamond chips, on, each side
Then, I replied, that is a lovely ring, the diamonds shine like the Sun,
when, it Comes up in the spring.
She smiled, pulled her hand back, and with her head Bowed down, she said,
I bought this ring, myself, and no one has said a thing About it, until today.
I looked into her warm blue eyes, as I laid, my credit card down
She gave me my receipt, and said, have a nice day sir, I returned her smile
Turned around and walked out the door, I thought, what does she make
Probably, 7 or 8 bucks an hour, yet, she bought, that gorgeous ring
What, fifty bucks? As I leaned, against, my Mercedes, I began to think
If, a girl, wants anything, she has to get it by herself, if, a girl wants the best
She, earns it for her-self. Big diamond rings, and a fancy car, don’t mean a thing
To a Girl, not a girl like her, who bought, her own ring
Then, I started up my fancy car, went on down the road, with this thought, on my mind.
“She, Bought Her, Own Ring”

sometimes certain "things" hold significant meaning somethings mean more than others..always a treasured thought behind each thing we treasure.. not always a materialistic thought more meaning when another soul can feel the meaning that lives within that memory..
