I gave you the arc of a rainbow,
the primaries for your palette.
With each stroke of your brush
I gave you my passion and pain.
I gave you the rising, setting sun,
a reflection of shadow and light,
that gave radiance to your open smile,
flaming–flamboyant or tranquil and demure.
I gave you the variable moon,
the glow and dim of your feelings
that rise and fall with the tides–
sea–change of life, never static!
I gave you all of my creation–
infinitely vivid and varied in colour,
to inspire you to reciprocate–
the depth of the love I gave to you.
No matter the tint or the hue,
I want so much from each of you.
Move from the shadows: into the light.
Extend beyond tones of black and white.
I gave my life to you, live it in full colour!
