The Hidden Rainbow!

 

Rainbow 1a

It has been raining
Rain drops keep falling
On and on, and on again!

The sun has gone
Behind the clouds
Taking away the
Light with him.

Without the rain
There are no rainbows
Without the sun too
There are no rainbows!

When will the
Sun come out again?
With patience
I wait time and again.

Looking up
High above,
Searching through the
Sky and clouds

Where has all
The colours gone?

I am waiting for
The Rainbow to
Come out
Again!

Lo behold
My waiting
Was rewarded,

It did
Come out
Not one

But
Two appeared!

A Mother’s Thoughts!

child-1a

In the silence,
Across the miles,
I hear your unspoken words.

Suddenly my heart overflows,
Just like,
A mother to her child.

The need arises,
To ask,
How are you,
My precious child?

But then you are silent.
As you are not my own?

Yet my own.
As you are in my heart,
And in my soul.

Always been,
And will be for ever.

Does anyone need,
To belong to you ?

To have that love,
Of a mother,
To her child?

A mother to my child,
I will always be,

To my child,
A mother,
I always will be!
