A World With Love

When my world

starts to feel cold,

the edges round it begin to blur,

the colors to fade.

I remind myself of what is real,

of the life you and I lead

and once the outside world is

left behind a closed door.

Everything in my world

falls into place once more.

Even with golden silence

between us,

there is a loving feeling

and my world regains contrast.

The colors brightening once more

and just like before -

all I need to do is close the door.

Leaving behind, that strange outside world,

take you by the hand

and love you once more,

and leave all the sorrow behind.

So easy to do in my world,

so hard to know what lies beyond.

If you and I can weather all the storms -

we’ll never grow old.

Still enjoying the pleasures of life

and marveling at the beauty

that nature provides,

knowing that there is a loving world

we can make our very own.

This I know is the wisdom of the ages,

as I look at paintings of lords and ladies -

their hearts now still

but once beating with love.

They still love through the ages,

now in the eternal sky,

for here they never let their love,

fade away nor let the colors blur,

on the world of love that they shared.

So on and on through the centuries -

love is one thing that never dies.

If you find your true love,

it will always shine,

and if in life you get parted -

you’ll have golden memories.

For once you reach the end of your days,

a starry path will lead you,

one to the other again.

Rasma, "Color My World" is one of my all-time favorite songs. It's one that must be listened to with no outside noise or distractions. I just love it.

My favorite stanza in this poem is the last one. It says so much.
