Rainbows bring magic, she once said.
Oh how she wanted to believe.
Her heart cried out for one which was dead,
The living intent on trying to deceive.
The touch of a hand, warm and smooth,
Caressing her face, she felt herself sway
Into the light, searching solace to soothe,
A Mother’s love, never far away.
The wish to feel that gentle skin,
Like a rainbow, gone so soon
Drifting across to a land unseen,
The other side of the moon.
Fading fast, the colours mere wisps
Glide over her body into shadow,
Retreating into her memory’s kiss
Somewhere, she cannot yet follow.
