Until Tomorrow

By Laura Zucca-Scott


If you paint sadness

Will you paint it with the colors of a sunset

When the sun dives as bright as ever in the ocean

Still losing the battle against the night

Or will you paint it as a fading smile

Of a goodbye you never expected to say

When words collide with reality

And hope fades in the distance

If you paint sadness

Will you remember to add

A sprinkle of gentleness

We can all hang on

Until tomorrow
