Shades Of Love - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

~~~***For my husband***~~~

All that glitters is not gold
So the wisemen say
As love shatters like a prism
For Heaven's diamond plays

As the red in the rose blooms
Or its petals shed as tears
Deepest are the shades of blue
Dark as night or light moods clear

As the yellow sun lights the sky
Or the greys come sailing in
Love is the truest color of your eyes
And it's stem the birth within

As white shares fidelity's hues
Or in green the stem of envy
Love is like the rainbow true
With anger's red or ending

Love is like the rainbow flowers
For me to share with you
In it's roots the home that's ours
And the children, me and you

For as the joy of the petals, open
Or the dark browns when they close
Love, we kissed in sunshine often
In the rainbow flowers-Love's rose!

On earth we stand and touch the sky
Shades of love I share with you
For the truest color lights your eyes
I'm glad I'm blessed with you.

For as love shines bright in my wedding band
And in the rainbowed flowers you gave me
As we share life hand-in-hand
Blessed, I feel are you and I for all eternity.
