Paint Your Love

Paint Your Love ©

Penned by Brad Osborne


I’ll paint your mood in shades of blue
Paint my soul to be with you

I’ll sketch your lips in shaded tones
Draw your mouth upon my own

I’ll draw my arms around your waist
Then all doubt shall I erase

I’ll paint the cool rain that softly lands
Upon the crescents of your hands

I’ll paint the sun that warms your heart
With hopes that our love can start

I’ll paint the stars in the deep night sky
Draw their light into your eyes

I’ll trace your hand to hold mine
A touching kiss to mark the time

I’ll paint the truth, show how I feel
And try to make this completely real

I’ll use a brush so light and fine
To draw you close and make you mine

Absent are you, I don’t know why

Must my heart wait for the paint to dry

    I’ll never understand how you’re single.

      I think I do. I have some pretty high walls. My blog entries are like throwing scribbled on, crumpled up pieces of paper over the ramparts. I can still hide safe inside. I have an upcoming poem called, “The Keep”. I hope you will return to read it. It probably explains a lot. Thanks for reading and commenting. P.S. I don’t want to be single, by the way, I guess I have just gotten good at it.
