Colors of You

COLORS OF YOU
by Dolores Cowart

Yellow ribbons all around,
Silver wings glint
leaving the ground,
Downloaded pictures
of laughing blue eyes,
Proudly serving Uncle Sam,
Same blue eyes weeping,
Over the ultrasound,

Gray smoke rising
at the sound of gun twenty one,
A glistening tear
on your father’s cheek,
you were all he expected in a son,

What oh, what am I to do,
With these colors, these colors of you.

It was Black as moonless midnight,
As the ground accepts your sacrifice,
Triangle of red, white, and blue,
Softly placed upon my lap,
Purple ribbon
pinned to your favorite hunting cap,

Black and white headlines say,
Local hero laid to rest today,
Nursery painted in yellow and blue,
Waiting for all that I have left of you,

What oh, what am I to do,
With these colors, these colors of you.
Even though you are yesterday’s news,
I still have all of these colors, these colors of you.
