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!

You Are Enough!

 

Gift 1a

My child,
You are enough
Don’t you Know ?

So many care
But,
You are unaware !

Life is such
We need to
Work hard!

Over and over again
I tell unto you!

But you forget
Constantly!

You are born
With a gift,
To colour
This world,

To bring,
Joy and Happiness,
Peace
To
This world!

Do not forget
Gifts are
Rare!

If not
They are used
Wisely
They will
Fly far away
From you!
