You gave a gift that I never saw 

Hidden by pain, very raw 

Like a diamond, it took shape 

Years of pressure, to equate 

Now I know I was wrong 

For many years, it took so long 

Me like you and you like me 

The gift was there for both to see 

Through the veil, a mystic Truth  

Inner-peace from gratitude  

No contempt, only love 

For this gift

Came from above
