Blood-Red Ruby

Kevin Anderson 1965 (Ill)



You're precious and valuable to me alone, you're my Blood-Red Ruby and
Stone

We have wandered near and far living a lifetime searching the world over for a bone

Bone of my bone and the flesh was mended.
Our paths merged alone the way and our agendas were amended

One path is ours now and we no longer wander and quander

You're worth more than Rubies; I've locked your love in my heart and I've swallowed the keys

You’re more precious than Blood-Red Rubies to me


Proverbs 3:15

King James Version

15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

Proverbs 31:10-31

King James Version

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

Dallied in Inglewood then Bompton or Compton, some do say. Signed my name on the dotted line bringing the world into full view. I joined the United States Air Force in 1986, fully retired in 2016, 30 years of honorable service and of making life do what it does so I can do what I do when I do what I do communicating my thoughts or a few. more…
