A Rainbow Of Hope

Beryl L Edmonds © more by Beryl L Edmonds

Published: April 20, 2020

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.

We have reached the peak of this terrible virus. I can now see that "Rainbow of Hope" on the horizon.

Thank you, brother John. I, too, see the 'Rainbow of Hope' on the horizon now that we're getting the vaccination. We are so lucky to have survived, though we'll never forget those that sadly died or those who still will. - Sister Beryl

Hello,
I wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for your many creative poems and we appreciate poet writers very much. No life without them. They can inspire people all over the world in spite of COVID - 19 Pandemic. We have to trust God and pray that the streets will come alive again. Shops will open, buzzing again, But the best moments will be when Family, friends, and poet writers can keep in touch. God never fails us, but people do. Just have a great faith in God to overcome COVID - 19 Outbreaks. Please keep up your creative poetry inspiration to uplifting people's hearts. You, the poet writers are really God-Sent. See, I am 70 years old and I was born deaf, blind and lame since birth. I keep going reading your poems making my life brighter and more cheerful to looking at the happy things in life. God bless you all!!!

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.
