Rubies are red, sapphire's are blue. It is foolish to let such things matter to you.
Pearls they are white, onyx is black. These stones won't make up for the things that you lack.
Silver is precious, the same goes for gold, but metals won't love you when you grow old.
Citrine is orange, diamond's are clear. A wise man does not hold these things dear.
Topaz is yellow, emerald's are green. When life is over, you will see what I mean.
