I just caught those pearls, but there are more
I caught the blue one, i thought
but has it turned red now, or yellow?
It seemed white though.
The blue one slipped, i held red tightly
It turned blue again!
Did i let red go, my favourite one?
It never told me it was slipping
I was looking at it, at least i think i was.
Red complains i never did, but i vouch for my sincerity
Just then i see red in my palm
Tears fall, unasked
I just had to look, says blue.
