The Colors of Love

Written by: Terry L. Allen

Love can give the warmth and glow
of a golden sunny day,
the joy and laughter
of a heart at play.

With love comes 
the bright red of fire,
when one is consumed
with passions desire.

Loves gentle beauty and grace
can leave on your face
a soft petal rose
when loves fire recedes to repose.

When love is errant and untrue
filled with hurt and pain
it can turn ones life
to sad and blue.

When love is threatened
from dark forces 
seen or unseen
the color of love
quickly turns to green.

If love is lost
or just gone away
it can turn life dull
and the color of gray.

Love in view all around
but none for you to be found
makes the world seem
ugly and brown.

Now with an eye you do espy
a chance for love anew
on comes the white light
of hope for you.

Love once again bright and new
gives an orange and gold tint
to the wonderful future
now in view.

The embers of love's fire
dances with life once again
as it begins it's life anew.

So on goes the rainbow of love
with varying color and hue.
