Treasure Island

Kaila George

(20 October 1962 / New Zealand)

A Gem She Is Indeed


I have known her
For several years
A true friend through and through
Her honesty and integrity
She bares for all to see
Every time we meet
I hug her like a bear
She's a no hold bars women
That cares for everyone she knows
You know when she is coming
Her voice booming from a far
She will tell you to your face
Don't even try and get in my face
If you really know what is good for you
Just stay right out of my line of grace
And her down to earth sense of humour
Is magic to behold
She has you laughing really loud
And rolling on the floor
And always I praise the lord
For bringing such a gem into my life
Because a gem she is indeed.

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
