To A Friend

I see lilac pink skies.

Blended watercolors

On a clear, white canvas.

They remind me of your dyed hair.

Can you see it?

Can you feel your spirit,

Your whole being,

Belonging to the twilight sky?

I blink, and took a picture

With my eyes, with my mind

To describe you from memory.

You colored my life,

and I thank you for it.

Never change your true colors,

Never leave your canvas blank.
