Paint It Clean With Love - Dec. 08, 2010

Paint it Clean with Love

Life for me is beautiful, like a dress of cool water and shining sun
Decorated with glowing stars and flowing dreams
If you wonder, why this smile of mine rarely comes undone
And what paints this rainbow as my theme

I could tell you stories of dark ways I have had to walk
Speak to you of anger and disgust
But I would rather know, I spread my smile as I talk
So I just leave those stories in the dust

I seek a better home that will wrap around all aching hearts
Built with strength and faith, painted clean in love
Big enough to share and always impart
Sweet warmth, like a glove

Life for me is beautiful, I embrace each day as it dawns
Wearing this smile, it brings to me
Each day is full of cool water and shining sun
I smile at the rainbow I see

If you will watch closely, you can see the glowing stars
Help me find this home I am dreaming of
We can smile and walk together; I hear it is not far
Hold my hand; we will paint it clean with love

like a dress of cool water - love that image. Your second verse is especially powerful. I really like this one. I am so glad you stopped by my blog and left a message. I have had a hard time finding some of my favorites...my faves got all mixed up when my harddrive crashed, and I have never been able to get them straight. I don't publish poetry on that blog anymore, but have it all on a seperate one which is on the side bar...my avatar always connects to my main one. Hope you have a lovely day.

Neva, this is so well expressed! Not only will a perpetual smile infect others, it helps you to glow inside, too! :)

Such pleasant thoughts...this the kind of home and place we should all dream of and seek. Nice poem, Neva :)

This a beautiful poem...it reminds me of a place I help to build once a year, and a person I used to know. I don't know if you want a response to the thought, but... I think, when you speak of what you have experienced and felt, even if it isn't a positive, it can bring someone joy, because they know they are not alone, or because they know that what they can come through what they are going through. And...that's worth something, too.
