Touching Rainbows
By Simply Shelby

In soft sheets falls the rain
Sunshine still pours through the clouds
Paints the sky a colored canvas

A rainbow in the sky.

Bare feet dance in wet, green grass
I try to touch what I can't seem to reach

Umbrella and rain-jacket cast aside
No disguise needed when praying for hope to hold

A rainbow in the sky.

Far beyond what I can seem to reach
Hopes are held and promises kept

Reaching, reaching farther still
To touch the colored lines

Fingertips brush the very tip
Of hope, of love, of solemn oaths

I'm touching the rainbow in the sky
Touching rainbows

Holding hope.

Keeping promises.

Reaching dreams.
