A Rainbow Of Hope

God will paint rainbows in the sky
Once again for the world and I.
Signs that will tell us all is well,
Freedom from this grim living hell.

I know one day the sun will shine.
Dark clouds above will disappear with time.
Some won't make the journey home.
Some will sadly die all alone.

But just like time, all things will pass,
For nothing's ever made to last.
Then once again we'll be on our way
When dawn awakes to a bright new day.

The streets will come alive again.
Shops will open, buzzing again.
But the best moments will be when
Family and friends meet again.

Thank you brother John.

The road has been long, the load heavy to bare,
yet the rainbow is the promise that the world will repair.
We will find the joy that life brings in our new tomorrows
and what causes hearts to sing after yesterday's sorrows.

Hi sister Beryl. I can now see that rainbow - sunny days are on their way.
