My precious cup of tea – I’m sure I’ll love you till eternity
You comfort me when I’m sick and cold,
And I hope you’ll still be strong & around, when I’m weary and old.
Blue and white, waiting on the shelf, I knew instantly you were to be mine,
Of the set of 4 that I had bought you with, only you stayed
to make my mornings warm & cheerful, my evenings a comforting delight.
When someone holds you, I always try to dissuade,
Will they treat you with the love and care that I do, I’m always afraid.
Your delicate look belies your strength and age,
Not a chip or crack and I’m grateful for that, may your beauty never fade.
Blessings for you to shine, sparkle and preserve your blue
My tea sure tastes best when it’s with you – you add that flavour to it, don’t you?
