Weaving a Tapestry of Love


I’d like you to weave

your love about me like a tapestry

In bright and brilliant colors

reflecting how you feel

show me that you believe

in the love that we share

I’d like to see

a lot of red

to show me that your heart

was true and full of love

right from the start

as lovely as the reddest roses

growing on the vine

a lot of green

so that our love can always grow anew

with the changing of every season

the brilliant blue of summer skies

and the shimmering sea

where we walk along the shore

leaving footprints in the sand

that the waves wash away

returning again and again

to bring back our signature

time and time again

the yellow of the sun

shining down upon our love

purple for the special twilights we share

gazing at the sun going down

spreading streaks of pink and purple

across the skies

waiting for the night to come riding in

closing its dark curtain

upon the light of day

create a tapestry of love

reflecting the years gone by

and those still ahead

golden threads for all the memories

that we share

and new ones that will come our way

silver threads to make the tapestry shine

with so much love

that keeps us together

a tapestry of love

that can last the years

cast aside all the fears and tears

only smiles from now on

and while we grow old together

let’s forever be young at heart

let the tapestry

reflect the special love

between you and me

a reminder it will always be

and never will it unravel

bound by our beating hearts
