COLORS OF LIFE

Written by: Debra Squyres



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?
