I'll apologise before you read this, but I'm feeling both thoughtful and sad, culmination of a tough, emotional day for me...trying to smile when my world is breaking up...there goes another rainbow..

I sold my home today
got the full price as well
no haggling, just offer after offer
I asked the last one why
he replied, "it's warm here
I feel the love throughout
it hit me when I walked in
it's in the walls, bouncing
out at me, in the garden
I feel it as I walk"
I thought he was mad
till his wife simply nodded
How can I have sold my home
when I have nowhere to go?
But love is clearly shown
whether you want it to be or not
and that's what sold my home
and so with darkness, I'll watch the rain
and listen to the thunder
I wish to bring the daylight back
I need my rainbow now

and you will have it, Rainbow Girl. You're much too beautiful not to shine for long.

Thanks guys...I'm not selling because I want to, but because I'm under pressure to do so...Men!..We create a home from a house and all he sees is profit, all I see is a home..but...one day I'll have the keys to MY home, MY freedom, MY rainbow....guess the tears need to be cried, the smiles need to be smiled and then I'll be home and dry..

HUGS
