A RAINBOW IN THE SKY


 

 

have you ever seen a rainbow?
a complete rainbow…. a full rainbow that extends beneath the sky?
i did.
it was wonderful.
so beautiful…
so magical.
it was him.
i knew.
it was him.

he finally let me see him…
as a rainbow.

as a new hope
in my independent existence.
to give me shine…
to give me warmth,
happiness.
and love.

maybe he heard my cries…
but he had to go…
a lady was calling him…
far beneath the skies.

the rainbow…
he told me not to worry…
he told me,
we’ll be seeing each other again sometime…
he told me,
i just have to be the way i am…

as i sipped coffeee
in an early morning break…
something invited me to to walk outside
and see life’s good gifts
of a Sunday in October.
and there,
i saw THE RAINBOW.
a rainbow to the sky…

i knew he was already there.
and it was a sign
that he has finally left forever.

but i could somehow imagine his pictures
smiling back at me
amidst the skies…

whatever will happen to me…
the rainbow guaranteed me.
that i will be safe…
that i will be happy.
that i will be loved.

“i never wanted you to go”, he said.
but they told me i had to let you go…
love is letting go…
love gives me freedom…
love is carefree, love is warm…
love is a wind that embraces the earth.

as i looked at the rainbow
i knew that it was you.
i knew that you’ve reached the skies.
and forever you’ll stay
with our BELOVED PARENTS UP ABOVE.

tell them
i love them, too.
tell them,
thank you.
for giving me
the riches, not of material wealth
but riches of what
i felt
and shared them
to everyone.

see you when i get there.
i will relax, as what you’ve whispered  to me.
i will stay the way i am,
as what you’ve wanted me to be.

within the end of the rainbow…
you will be there.
waiting.
as a FRIEND.
WHO NEVER LEFT AND ALWAYS STAYED.
to guide me-
FOREVER.
