Paint Your Picture As You Go

Paint Your Picture as You Go

If only I could reach you

Put my hand close to your heart

Let you know that all is well

That your life’s a work of art

If only I could teach you

To paint your picture as you go

Dream your dreams as big as mountains

That you climb them as you grow

Are you looking for direction

For my wisdom, for my cue

Then ‘tis to listen to your own path

Know yourself in all you do

poem by Jo Gopsill

I've been working on some illustrations for a friend who writes heart warming poetry about children. Like to hear more? Feel free to leave comments, we would love to hear what you have to say.
