I'LL PAINT YOU A RAINBOW
Grace E. Easley
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.
