My Colouring Book


For those who fancy colouring books

And lots of people do

Here's a new one for you

A most unusual colouring book

The kind you never see

Crayons ready

Very well

Begin to colour me

These are the eyes

That watched him

As he walked away

Colour them grey

This is the heart

That thought

He would always be true

Colour it blue

These are the arms that held him

And loved him

Then lost him somehow


Colour them empty now

These are the beads

I wore until she came between

Colour them green

This is the room that I sleep in

And walk in, and weep in, and hide in

That nobody sees


Colour it lonely please

This is the man

Whose love I depended upon

Colour him gone
