    I wrote this piece for my best friend. She's worth every syllable and more:

    Essence of A Queen

    A woman sovereign over her own domain
    The very essence of a lady, mother, and friend
    Unrelenting in wisdom and unbending in spirit
    The dove that flew long before the sky was created

    That is she…
    Original…phenomenal…incomparable beauty
    Breathing life into the breathless
    Giving rest to the restless
    Offering her very self to those unworthy of her gifts

    The gift?
    Love that is infinite
    Friendship that is genuine
    A soul eternal with a heart that is endless
    She is the black pearl living among men…
    Rare by design and her value…priceless

    She is the sapphire of September
    The gem always to be remembered
    The warmth in the midst of a cool November
    She is the light in the distance forever to be seen
    The bare and beautiful essence of a Queen.

    Certainly seems worthy of being called a queen, and she is lucky to have a friend who recognizes her as such. The rhythm and your use of metaphors...wonderful. This was a truly endearing piece.
