I know the colour of love
It lives inside me
It’s a phenomenon of light
Cascading through my bones
Spreading like wildfire
Through my soul
It comes from my heart
Reflecting through my soul
Like a rainbow
In the rain, sun and snow
I will draw the light into your eyes
At morning, noon and night
We would hold each other so tight
I would take your hands to hold mine
We would be together for all time.
The colour of love is the colour of my lipstick on your collar
The blush on my cheeks when I think about how we met
And how I felt
The day you decided to make me your queen
Nothing looks more beautiful than the hue
The colour of love is you!
