Shines Through

A portrait falls
To the shadows of my mind
Brush strokes paint
The sorrows I find

Colors blend
The feelings of pain
From the pallet is told
The oil is to rain

Found it somehow
Tell me you must
Victory soon
Your pen I do trust

Pick it up
Look at it still
You hold my heart
Take it you will  

Caress it gently
Help it heal
Stop the bleeding
Love to reveal

New friend I have made
By my side are you
In service to him
His love shines through
