The Color Of My Heart - Poem by William Lindenmuth

When the world ‘s a little darker
And I am searching for some light
When I take my self from darker blue
To a color warm and bright
I think about the good times
And a smile forms on my face
To the comforting color of my heart
A most enchanting place
When all the walls are tumbling down
And I am buried in my grief
When it all looks so impossible
And far beyond belief
I turn back to that special place
And the comfort that lies there
To the color of my heart
And the love that it will share
When a smile is like a rainbow
A bright inverted frown
Lifting me up in a burning warmth
Where true happiness can be found
Without a rhyme or reason
And beyond what words can suggest
I live by the color of my heart
And the feelings I know best

    Very nicely done. An uplifting poem and just the right words chosen to convey the message. Reminds me of my Rainbow poem. I think we are much alike, you and I.
    I enjoyed this read.
