As An Artist - Poem by Heather Burns

I carefully paint
a picture on my
canvas

with each stroke
I wipe away a tear

causing a smile to
reappear.

As an artist

I endow your face
with my brush

making it more
perfect as I go

until at last the
image of my love
I see.

    Very beautifully painted your feelings. Wiping a tear and causing a smile to reappear is not an easy job, which you've done so well. (Report) Reply
