I’ll Paint You a Rainbow

I’ll paint you a rainbow to hang on the wall,
To brighten your heart when the grey shadows fall.
On a canvas of joy outlasting the years,
With a soft brush of sweetness to dry all your tears.

I’ll paint you a rainbow with colors of smiles,
That glow with sincerity over the miles.
On a palette of words, I will tenderly blend.
Tones into treasures of sunlight and wind.

I’ll paint you a rainbow that reaches so wide
Your sighs and your sorrows will vanish inside.
And deep in the center of each different hue,
A memory fashioned especially for you.

So lift up your eyes, for suspended above,
A rainbow designed by the fingers of love.

~Laurie Maitland
