Finding the Rainbow

It is raining in my heart.

We've seen these floods before.

I thought those stables had been washed out years ago.

But I guess a reckoning was coming

And so was the new rain

One which can never wash away the pain.

For I had never learned to love

I had never learned to fly

I had never learned to be the sky

Not the clouds

Those same clouds that surround me now

Dark and ominous

Shedding their tears of loss, of grief, of pain.

But the rain can be quenching

It can water my greener pastures of growth

And the rain drops will collect

And fill in the you-shaped hole in my soul

A formidable puddle.

It will reflect the welcome sun

Once he shows his face again

And brightens everything

With a rainbow.
