Rainbow

walking down the road
feeling cold and blue
saying goodbye was so hard to do
I looked up to the sky;

clouds of darkness on one side
light filtering in from another
walking from one place to another
on a carpet of fallen leaves;

feeling miles away
and completely at ease,
colors as vibrant as can be,
shimmered on the horizon;

transforming the weary skies,
highlighting the beauty within
colors of multiple shades
whispering hope in every hue;

bridging the gap between
dreams and desires,
as the waterfall of happiness rain down,
these tears of sorrow gets hidden from view;

as I walk along the dark highway of life,
after all the thunderstorms,
shining through drops of heavy rain
appearing like a colored stream
making a dull sky magical and bright;

like a dream after a nightmare,
the light breaks through the clouds,
and a rainbow appears on the sky
reminding tomorrow will be better
though today I weep;

- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - -
multiple meanings exist :)
