Rainbows appear only on dreary, rainy days.
They beauty the world for a few brief moments.
These moments, however, can be spectacular.
YOU were my brief rainbow.
You entered my life
And stayed for but a short while.
Nonetheless, the memories of those moments
Blessed us with laughter and delight.
Joy and smiles, charm and beauty,
Gaiety and happiness,
Mischief and stillness,
Sunlight and moonbeams,
Giggles and love.
It made the deluge, the tears of pain and anger,
Helplessness and fear, insanity and agony,
Sadness and heartbreak,
Emptiness and loneliness bearable.
Rainbows, however brief,
Make the world a brighter, lovelier place.
How greateful I am that I had you,
My brief rainbow.
