Colors of youth

So vibrant and true.

Fresh and bright

Never giving a clue


Colors of yesterdays

Shades lighter and dim

Chances of brightening

Are all running slim


Colors of memories

Fading softly each day

No longer sharp

Black into gray


Colors of Joy

Lost in time and space

Forgotten in the corners

Of another place


Colors of Happiness

Broken in pieces

Stripped from Life

Leaving only creases


Colors of Love

Chipped and peeling

Fallen off the canvas

Alone and unfeeling


Colors of today...

Simply gone away.


Colors of tomorrow?

Simply another day


It's Life's Colors

What more can I say?
