I looked at the Garden
Through rose colored glasses
And through these eyes
I could clearly see there was beauty.

I looked at the garden
Seeing colors so bright
Sparkle and shine
A beauty in light

I looked at the garden
A wondered what would be
If I removed these rose glasses
Allowing me to see

That my vision was hindered
Not clear and true
Shaded from darkness
Clouded from view

I saw what I wanted
  Not what was ahead
   Imagined it gleaming
    Was dying instead

    Decaying before me
   I covered the pain
  Used rose colored visions
To cover the stains

I now admit madness
Give in to the sane
No rose colored glasses
To keep out the rain.

Accept the deflection
For clearly Iíll see
That what I was seeking
Was really in me

Inside of you
is Garden of Eden--
tho sometimes in pain
is planting of seedlings...

and if there's a doubt--
should sun furnish drought--
look for a shadow
of love softly sleeping,
remember that rain
is but angels keeping---

you--close to heart.

Ixtab thank you very much and very true

Balladeer Sometimes you get hit so hard with something and wonder why you haven't seen it all along
thats what happened here.

Serenity - You know you inspire me to write
don't think I would write a 3rd as much as I do without you pushing
Thankx
