It could have included you, this rainbow from my past,
It trailed the skies in seven hues,
It presented itself as an illustrious sign of novelty.
As it trailed to the other end of the universe,
Where distance was the only thing that separated us,
I stood in awe at its incredulous beauty,
A tinge of its rays falling softly upon me.
I looked as far as my eyes could see,
Would it perhaps be the sign that leads me to where paradise is?
I so want to see if it belonged to another world,
I so want to be part of its fabled conception.
I sat by the Sea that day,
Wondering about the rainbow that set my heart aflame,
I could have been the seraph with a message that said,
“It could have been you on that rainbow with me.”
