UNBEARABLE BEAUTY IN Pick a Color

On a day bathed in so many shades of misty grey
There upon those rugged cliffs above the Fundy Bay
Heart pounding like the thunder in those crashing waves
Trembling lips dripping with heart-felt words I could not say

So shy,  I was a teenage girl so much in love
My soul on fire like that blazing stormy sky above
Where lighting crackled and sizzled in a burning  flame 
As his yearning eyes searched mine there in that wind-swept rain

Taking cover in that shack with broken window panes
Where tattered pieces, of old lace curtains still, remained
Peels of nervous laughter silenced in that broken frame
As the storm outside ragged against us all in vain

When with tears of stormy weather still running down his face
His lips found mine there in that that old abandoned place
A moment so electrifying, it seared my soul
With a memory that  haunts me now that I am old

When stormy weather lets me see him as he was that day
There on those lofty cliffs above the Fundy Bay
My heart pounding like the thunder in those crashing waves
As I drift in the beauty of those shades of misty grey
