RAINBOW THROUGH MY TEARS

Copyright 2018 by Judy Unger

When life holds pain

it’s just like rain

it pours, then it clears

I see a rainbow through my tears

those tears I’ve cried

have always been my guide

my heart may still bleed

but with my tears, I’m freed

When life was hard

I put up my guard

I locked inside

feelings I denied

For many years

I would suppress my tears

But when I let go I saw the rainbow

Color burst into the sunlight

Darkness faded into daylight

Every hue was within view

Numbness was replaced by feeling

For so long I despaired of healing

Now I know, it appears

Hope came with the rainbow through my tears

I used to pray I would see that rainbow someday

When I couldn’t smile

All the while I searched to find

colors in my mind

But grief was like night

without an end in sight

I didn’t know when I’d see a rainbow

Color burst into the sunlight

Darkness faded into daylight

Every hue was within view

Numbness was replaced by feeling

For so long I despaired of healing

Now I know, it appears

Hope came with the rainbow through my tears

There was always hope

In the rainbow through my tears
