LOVE TAKES A BOX OF CRAYONS....

I'm only four years old he said..

As he climbed up on the chair.

And handed me the picture he had drawn.
My eyes then engulfed tears as I saw his meticulous attempts to swoon emotional growth.

I knew just how to color Mamma's eyes and Daddy's hair.
But Mam, I still think there's something wrong.

There's one color missing and I just don't know...
If it's gold or green or blue or red.

He said,
which one of my crayons is the color of true love?

Well, I just looked at him and then I said...
Love is red cause it lives within the heart
Love is blue cause it's wider than the sky
yLove is green cause it's deeper than the forest or the ocean
Love is white like a dove for it can fly
Love is gold cause it warms us like the sun
Love is brown like the earth, it helps us grow
Love takes a whole box of crayons to imagine
Love is the heart's rainbow.

I said,

" I've seen little baby's born.
And I've seen old friends pass away."
Love has made me laugh and made me cry.
There ain't just one kind of love
It changes everyday.
And if I had to guess I'd say that's why...
Love is red cause it lives within the heart.
Love is blue cause it's wider than the sky.
Love is green cause it's deeper than the forest or the ocean.
Love is white like a dove, for it can fly.
Love is gold cause it warms us like the sun.
Love is brown like the earth, it helps us grow.
Love takes a whole box of crayons to imagine.
Love is the heart's rainbow.
And he said,
"Oh, thank you, Mam....
Thank you!"
He said,
"Now I think I knowwhat it is that I have got to do.
"He said ,"I'll go get my crayons
And I'll make a big rainbow
And I'll put in one color just for you...

He said :
Love is red cause it lives within the heart
Love is blue cause it's wider than the sky
Love is green cause it's deeper than the forest or the ocean
Love is white like a dove for it can fly
Love is gold cause it warms us like the sun
Love is brown like the earth, it helps us grow
Love takes a whole box of crayons to imagine
Because love is the heart's rainbow.

Amias,
And I can add a few more from my heart if I gave it a bit more thought. :)
