The Colour of White

Written By: Michelle Bolton

The Colour of White

I watched you pack your bags and heard you say,
God be with my family while I’m away
Dreams placed on hold, promises made,
I’ll be back soon I heard you say

I hear unspoken words, loud and clear
I know you feel the weight of my fear
And drift across the eddies of calm,
Whilst in your arms
I’m safe from harm

Do you believe in the colours that you wear?
Do you believe in what you’ll find there?
And I can’t explain the truth
When it cuts you in two
I hold my breath and I say……

Duty and honour and country don’t keep me warm at night
Waking up lonely every morning with the flame of hope alive

Just keep it on burning
Keep it on burning
Keep it on burning

Do you believe in the colours that you wear?
Do you believe in what you’ll find there?
And I can’t explain the truth
When it cuts you in two
I hold my breath and I say……

Child

Written By: Michelle Bolton

I remember the first time I saw your face
I remember the way I felt
I remember your fingers, your beautiful eyes
I remember the way you smelt

Just like yesterday, the memory is clear
Of a happy child, one held so dear
I remember ……..

I remember your face on the first day of school
The pride in your eyes and a tear in mine too

Just like yesterday, the memory is clear
Of a happy child, one held so dear
I remember ……..

I could hold you from the world outside
Make it safe and warm in here
I could tell you stories to light up your face
And wipe away all of your tears

I remember……………..

I remember the day that you said to me
I was not yours and to let me be free
I remember the angst in letting you go
The fear of the world, the fear of unknown

I remember………..

So here am I, I stand with pride
And let you go into the world outside
And make it safe and warm out there
And never forget how much I care

I remember……………
I remember…………
