True Colors

Show your true colors. Those who truly love you will see a painting.

It's during the worst time of your life that you will get to see the true colors of the people who say they care for you.

True Colors- Cyndi Lauper ....

The reason I have always loved this song is that it expresses so clearly the way I look at the people in my world.

First I see you with my eyes.

Then as I get to know you, (and I always seem to want to know people on a deeper level)., I want to know your heart. I am not very content with the shallow stuff ,which has little significance to me.

I want to know what makes your heart beat faster.

What makes you cry.

What makes you smile, and gives you joy.

I want to know if you can be vulnerable enough to trust me with your feelings.

I want to know if I can trust you with mine and know you have compassion.

As one HUMAN being to another.

I want to know if you live your life with reverence.

All of life and all human beings deserve respect , until shown otherwise.

I will look at you with my eyes, my mind, and mostly with my heart. That is why I will see your "true colors". the beauty of your soul....

Noone is true bluer that poeter youer. "True blue" an Australian expression meaning true to oneself and your fellow man. But you knew that.You have bingoed it again Twinkletoes. Remember that Buddy Holly hit 'Heartbeat?' You is wearing it on your sleeve again girl! Have a great weekend...give your heart a rest...roll your sleeves up. Are you sure you're not selling reconditioned hearts? /:>)

Thank you Riginal...yes it means the same thing here...honest, loyal...I was out buying some birthday presents fro two of my grandkids....so that bingo money came in handy...:) Have not heard that song in years, guess I should go listen to it on UTube...I do know I liked it though. LOL...you are rushing the weekend, time moves too fast as it is, don't you find? Yes, you are right, but I have never figured out how to not live life with my heart, and don't want to , even when it causes me some pain, it is still what I want my life to be...lived with my heart and soul...hugs
