They stand hand in hand at the waters edge. The aftermath of white-capped waves splashes softly over their toes. He looks at her with so much love in his eyes. She completes him, she has shown him such a different world and made him a better person.
There in that moment on the beach, they are wearing yellow for me.
She splashes in the shallow water, crashing into waves. Wearing a seven dollar swim suit, she looks so at peace and perfect in the lake.
Her swim suit is highlighter green, but there, tumbling amongst the waves she is wearing yellow for me.
back at home he is missing us, wondering when we’ll be back. He always loves me even when I have a hard time showing him my love.
And because of this he wears yellow for me.
Some days the clouds cover the sun and I find the sunflowers at the back of my garden to be wilted and brown. I wear grey because I can’t find any yellow clothes to wear.
with nothing bright in my small little world, tears form on my cheeks and fear eats my mind away.
These days THEY wear yellow for me. They act as my sunlight and dry the droplets on my face.
If I have to drive across the world to see their sunlight then I do.
because I know when I get there they’ll all be wearing yellow for me
and then I can find my yellow shirt too.
