Color me Red…

The color of sun and a yellow ray,
You paint my face every day.

New colors of bright summers touched my window,
And the old grey of the winter too I could see down the lane.
They all painted a new shade today,
A spread of grey in an expanse of yellow,
Thorns dripping red on eyes turning mellow.

The color of sun with a misty gray,
You paint my face every day.

My door opened to find white snow,
Itโ€™s fleeting touch cleaned the browns below.
My fingers dipped again in pink,
A spread caught short with a rush of black,
A hue of dark sweeping across my heart.

The color of sun with a black sway,
You paint my face every day.

Wish I would find red lying when I go out,
A splash across my face, a splash across my back.
Some of red on the dark grey inside,
Mix it with water, mix it with white,
Make shades of red to color my life.

The color of sun with crimson gone astray,
Please paint my face with it every day.
