Holi is the festival of colours, and marks the beginning of spring and the harvesting season. People come out and play with colours: sprinkle coloured water and smear colour on each other's faces. 'Colouring me' has a deeper connotation...


Colour Me

Colour me!
Colour me red with your passion
Let our blood mingle together
Flow through our veins as one...

Colour me tender with your love
Let your sapphire fragrance
fill my soul, to the core...

Colour me wet with your tears
Let your sorrow be as mine
Enrich me with your pain, my love...

Colour me blue with your anguish
Lend poignancy to my heart,
Enthrall me with the joy of sharing yours...

Colour me joyous with your song
Fill my heart with melody
Elate me with your symphony...

Colour me fast, colour true,
Colour me strong in all your hues!
Colour me, now, my love,

Before you leave me and go...
