Love, romance /
Wrapped in your tender graces and
Tied up with laughter,
The gift of your love was
Warmer than Vincent's yellow,
Deeper than Pablo's blue.
As bright as a clear Mediterranean morning,
Exciting as a dark brooding sky
Electrical and storming,
As refreshing as a Chicago breeze in August
Joyfully lifting a kaleidoscope of kites.
But your gift was exchanged
For an empty box,
With wrapping that sparkled like fools gold,
And you've taken your presents elsewhere,
Leaving this fool just to write a thank you note.
by Pink Butterfly

I particularily like the first 2 verses, so very descriptive, excellent imagery capturing your feelings.

This is a beautiful poem, the message in the end is intensly sad, but it is the way things go sometimes. But..it's better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all, don't you agree?
