Color My World

If I could see all colors
Would my favorite be red
The color of passion
Rose petals on the bed

Perhaps I would choose green
In pastures we could lay
Being there beside you
Would take my cares away

I'm inclined to choose brown
The color of your eyes
I already love them
They are gentle and wise

I don't think I'd choose blue
It just sounds way too sad
I might prefer purple
If that one makes you glad

You bring me the colors
The ones I cannot see
You're the unseen rainbow
That can be seen by me

My favorite is yellow
The one color I see
I bathe in your sunlight
Every day you're with me

Dedicated to my sweetie, written by her colored blind husband.
Happy Mothers Day to the love of my life

    I had no idea you were color blind, Rick. It seems with every color blind person I meet it's always yellow that is the one color they see best. Your Yellow Shoes poem makes a lot more sense to me now! Lovely tribute btw... I'm sure she will appreciate it!

    A very nice and lovely poem, a nice color to love and enjoy. This makes a very nice mother's day poem. Richard, thank you for all the nice and lovely visits in the past. After seeing and hearing the things that go on in this world, gives me reason to pray and never take my true poet friends for granted. Enjoy the greatest people and things in life. Have yourself a wonderful and lovely Mother's Day. Lots of Luv & Hugs *LINDA

    Richard, thank you for the sweet comment. It s hard to keep up with so many poets. However from here on I will never take my good poet friends for granted. Many poets here have been nothing but good to me. Sometimes I forget them when I'm all coiled up with my own problems. I keep telling myself everyone is alike and I should be like them, but I am wrong we are all different, and I should go back and start being myself. Go back, and enjoy everyone the way I would in the past. You are a wonderful man, and I thank you for that one day you reached out to me a long while back. well not that long ago :-).... LINDA

    You are a sweetheart Linda, I am amazed how you manage to keep in contact with so many people. I wrote this one for my sweetie for mothers day. I noticed you are running a contest after reading Freddies poem so I have now entered your contest as well.
