Glowing champagne globes reflected shimmer,

Purple spears of light sparkle,

Tiny knots keep them distinct,

Separated as surely as distance,

One ancient,

Then Daughter,

Now Aunt

The amethyst and the pearl,

Together apart,

Live on as the strand slips through my fingers

Remembered love, hugs, comfort,

Heated hurt cooled,

Safe in their arms once more,

Nestled at my breast.
