Portrait Of Your Heart

Poem by Jez Burl

If your heart
I could make
an oil painting
I will adorn it
with precious jewels
and all the beautiful
blossoms of spring.

To sunset
I will borrow colors
from light to deep red
to highlight hues
of the happiness you bring.


Then I will hang
that portrait
to a wall
where my soul
finds its home.

    Lovely testament to that person you so obviously adore! Straight-forward and not sappy at all. 10+++++(Report)Reply

    the people thereon, will find
