I'd like to paint you on the eyes of others
in colors that exist only in my mind,
and show the world as I see you,
and bring out the beauty
I see inside of you.
I'd paint your mousy hair a new shade of gold.
I'd paint those eyes the bluest blue.
I'd make your skin glow
in my own rainbow of colors.
I'd fix that busted knee,
that crooked smile
those callused hands,
and let the world see the man I see
the man I love.
