Color Me Blue

Color me blue
As I think of you
A love once true
Has lost its radiant hue

Tomorrow I begin anew
How?  I haven't a clue
A love once true
Has now faded blue

Where is the joy we knew
Happiness that grew
A love once true
It's gone; it flew

I know we're through
All around I see blue
A love once true
Leaves me longing for you

Wondering what I can do
No more to pursue
A love once true
Has left me so blue

I eat my words, I chew
Taste like a worn shoe
A love once true
Has gone askew

Did I misconstrue
I strove to continue
A love once true
Until you withdrew

Color me blue

Love hurts sometimes... Do you remember that old song? It has a lot of truth. But sometimes love is blissful and that's what causes "LOVE addiction!" LOL. Love, Dane

blue is a true color of sadness. and can also mean strength. to keep trying, or to go on. it allows you to listen to what your heart tells you because sometimes, others opinions aren't what truly needs to happen. thats when you need to go in your heart, even if it's painful.wonderful write Carolyn. -Always&Forever Lynette
