I Was Painting You

Thomas W Case

I know they look like sunrises and sunsets,

but I was painting you.
When I painted all the rivers that lead to the oceans,

and the glorious starry nights, and the flowers;

the sublime orchids and the tender roses.
In the end
and from the beginning,
I was painting you.
