We said Yes
you and I
To all the colors of life’s spectrum
We endured the blackness of hatred
and bathed in the soft pink of joy.
We sank into the dull gray of despair
and rose to heights of yellow ecstasy.
The browns of age and death
ravaged the garden of our love
Making space for the green
of youth and new growth to emerge.
And ahhh…the reds of anger
shooting daggers aimlessly into our disbelieving heart
Led us to the infinite blues
of an all-embracing sky.
We said Yes to it all
You and I
before time began…
And you who introduced me
to a world of emotion
I would never have had the courage
to enter on my own
are the rainbow of my soul.
