I Gave You Gold

Wed, 03/07/2018 - 14:25 -- EELoura

I thought you wanted gold,

Not silver, steel, or bronze.

That's what I was told.

 

Oh, gold! That's worth a lot!

All or nothing, not half

For You, I was taught.

 

My dreams mean nothing, no?

All is vanity, dust.

So I must, for you, forgo.

 

Aurum ego dabo vobis.

Gold I gave to you

just to be told no?

 

Gold is rare, hard to acquire.

All the streams I panned...

They were for nothing?

(For nothing!)
 

So may I chase the wind,

Pursue the dreams I planned 

While another gets the ring?
