Every Color Is Black

Every color is black
When they can only paint in the dark
Every river runs dry
When love no longer flows
Every feeling turns blue
When sadness is as deep as the ocean
Every question starts with why
When your heart no longer knows

Every eye is shut
When the happiness of others is all you see
Every heart stops beating
When there is no answer for your call
Every mind is closed
When you cannot understand your loss
Every love is dead
When their soul offers nothing at all
