My Special Diamond

I discovered a Diamond one day.
It was rough and unpolished,
and a small piece had broken away.
But underneath was plain to see.
A very special Diamond was about to be.
I followed news reports.
And concert tour efforts.
The critics reprieve.
But never saw a fan leave.
I felt the pain of disappointment.
The elation of success and enjoyment.
I watched through the years as the sharp edges wore away.
And the facets begin to develop,
and the shine began to stay.
I waited as the polishing took form.
I watched as a new Diamond was born.
I now see a shining, confident star.
Who has come so very far.
With fans who’s love was found.
A special Diamond who shines,
With a special sound.
