painting my heart

if i could paint a picture
of my heart
it would show 
shades of you

i would see the hazel
of your eyes
the copper tones
of your hair
the crimson of 
your breath
that flows in my veins

i would see the shades
of springtime green
as your laughter
fills my soul
the blue of yesterday
mixed with the gold
of a bright tomorrow

i would see the color
of your skin so fair
a beauty of 
the summer clouds
the blush of red 
on your cheeks
sweet nothings
whispered to you

i would see the palette
of your kindness
all the colors of 
love you give

if i could paint a picture
of my heart
it would be 
a reflection of you
