Every time I see it
Every time I wear it

It reminds me of you, my beloved cousin
I remember when you said
Kayla, come pick out a necklace
and this was the first thing
that caught my eye

a breathtaking pāua shell design
the shape of a beautiful owl

the sun stares right at it
it glistens and glows

As you gaze at it
You can see it’s charm

If it’s lost
my heart will be flattened
like a new ferrari
in an automatic car crusher
