Just A Touch Of Sadness





Let me paint for you, a picture
As only true artists can do
With this parchment as my canvas
My paints, no more than this ink of blue

Let my words convey my image
As my heart brings to them, life
Creating this, a poetic plea of sorts
A ritual to banish what hurts inside

Gone are sweet strokes of sunshine
Try as they may....to shine through
Now sorrow, my ever bittersweet, brush in hand
Softly stirs these inks of blue

Seems but an ordinary color
Nothing unusual, they sometimes say
They can't see beyond, nor grasp the meaning
In a touch of sadness......
