    Portrait

    What colors would you use to paint me
    Red, yellow, blue, burgundy?
    Would you paint the smiles and joy?
    Would you paint the love of a boy?
    Would you paint the days I cried
    When I found out that he lied?
    Would you paint the hopes and fears?
    Would you paint the held back tears?
    Would you paint my desperate fights
    To make it through those nights?
    Would you sweep your brush across
    And show everything I've lost?
    Would you paint in every win
    And the times I wouldn't give in?
    Would you paint my love for my child?
    Would you paint me a little bit wild?
    Would my portrait truly portray
    What secrets would it betray?
    When finished what would they think?
    Is it a masterpiece in ink?
