The Colors of a Fated Love

The Colors of a Fated Love

Cherry red and sadness blue
The colors of my time with you
How the seasons change so fast
The summer sun is in the past.

The brilliance of a gold sunrise
The teardrops blue did fill your eyes
And all about the day's green promise,
Soon fell the night of black upon us.

Oh, give me back that virgin hue
The brilliant nights discovering you
The infinite blackness of summer skies
That backs the stars within your eyes.

But the rainbow fades from view with the hours
And the sun is obscured by grey, clouded showers
And greener grasses claim their due
When lights no longer shine on you.

So perfect colors go astray
The memories of a brighter day
Tarnished silver and dying black
The hues of days not coming back.

Hello A Lonely Journey...

Welcome to Cosmo!

So perfect colors go astray
The memories of a brighter day
Tarnished silver and dying black
The hues of days not coming back.

Awesome write!
