nothing but words …

paint softer colors

paint softer colors

 

Paint softer colors for a troubled soul,

pretty pastels in shades of green and blue,

and pray for the broken to be made whole.

The warmth is gone, my heart knows nought but cold,

but if you would seek to comfort and soothe,

paint softer colors for a troubled soul.

As watercolors blend towards their goal,

I see what has been hidden from my view

and pray for the broken to be made whole.

The canvas waits, like a deep, empty hole,

to be filled by all I believe is true,

paint softer colors for a troubled soul.

Creative passion always takes its toll,

but no matter what, we must pay what’s due

and pray for the broken to be made whole.

I do believe we each must play our role,

my legacy of wisdom isn’t new,

paint softer colors for a troubled soul,

and pray for the broken to be made whole.
