Colours of Life


In the sunrise of fiery glamour

A new day spreads the light

The night takes a welcome sigh

As the sun burns its radiance so bright

Sparkling silver in reflection

The sullen sea kisses the day

Upon the ocean through the waves

Are twenty dolphins in the bay

Leaping through invisible hoops

A show they do perform

To teach us to be happy

The reason we were born

I look upon these creatures

And now my heart is sore

We think we live forever

One day we wish for more

When my day comes as it will

Your tears will flow a river

But don’t stand at my grave and weep

For this is not where I will sleep

I’ll be the sea breeze in the morning

The sunlight bleaching shells

The waves that pound the beach

The air that blows your curls

The summer storms that cool the day

The rainbow across the bay

When you wake up in the morning light

I’m the swift uplifting rush of air

To remind you to keep up the fight

Forget your problems that eat your soul

Leave them to sleep get out behold

Feel the rain, embrace the shadows

See the beauty soak up the sun

Make the choice embrace your life

As day and night yield another delight

  1. This is great. A real nice beginning, golden sunshine with silver reflection- brilliant work. But then it takes a turn…”we think we live forever”
    This hit like a drum. Profoundly impacting. Brilliant work my friend. I will show your fellow Australians your work, while I am here.
    For the time being the golden coast is safe
    Take care

  2. As day and night yield another delight… And don’t let the problems eat your soul- forgive me if a got your quotes wrong but those thoughts stuck with me as I read your words- your image is stunning and I love the poem- cleansing just like your ocean :))
