In 1991, I bought my wife Dianne a silver necklace for a Valentine's Day gift. I wrote her a poem in connection with the giving of the gift. Here is that poem:
Packaged in wrapping with ribbons fair,
With twisted center to add a flair,
In tribute to us, an inseparable pair,
Forged by skill the metal rare,
To match the silver in your hair,
Around your neck a piece to wear,
A special gift to share my care,
For life without you I'd dare not bear.
Thank be we have our lives to share.
No power on earth sealed bosoms tear.
