When that time has come and gone
when I can no more breathe
you'll need to ask yourself
whether I would also grieve?

Look deep inside yourself
maybe find a funny memory
hear some laughter, see a smile
and you just found a little part of me

Don't forget the love I tried to give
or all the hugs that I gave with all my heart
or the life that made me want to live
or even LJA who once called me a tart.(ROFL)

What is the one thing you hope
people remember about you after you die?
to think of me as a kaleidoscope
a rainbow who loved, laughed and cried..

I didn't see the challenge... but when I read your title, I thought HUGS, HUGS, and still more HUGS! *S* And Rainbows and Snoops... and a kind, loving heart in the dearest of friends... and then there's Wanton Hussy! LOL. Well done, RG... but plan on sticking around for a long time... 'kay?

Well, about that tart thingie - I was thinking of a cherry tart - so that's OK - right?

This was an exceptionally good poem about a lady who has more class than any one person deserves. I'll never forget you, or the amazing amount of tenderness and caring you show to everybody.

I will listen to the melodious chords of Somewhere Over the Rainbow.....and smile, although you are one thing I would never get over.

It seems strange to be responding in the circumstances but just wait till it happens, and I'll come back and haunt you all with hugs, failing that, you'll see a rainbow but instead of it being an upturned mouth it will be upside down and therefore smiling...but I dread the thought that it might actually sing..

HUGS all

What can I say that the others haven't? Simply wonderful, Rainbow. (There, I said something different. )

The world would be a better place if we had more rainbows! This poem is you! As you know, life is short...how we live it is how we'll be remembered. You will be remembered with love and a smile! You give both equally - along with a liberal dose of hugs!

Rainbows are ribbons
Of light fantastic
Tied to the rain
Before and after
Bows in the morning
Before
Bows in the evening
After

Their beauty is only in color,
Yours is more than the eye can see,
Your heart though bodily covered,
Has beauty that's beyond belief!

(by the way, yanno, LongJohn may have just mis-typed that "tart" thinggie......Now what would be worse? A "Tart" or a "fart?"...Yassee, ya gotta look for the good in people....LOL...and you usually do!

Toe: True, If it had been verbal I probably would have misheard and thought LJA said that anyway..:-)

And the rainbow's color would be brillant in hue,
Just like the poetry that always comes from you!
Very nice, Rainbow

O all ye powers that he implanted, Arise, keep silence no more; put forth the strength that he hath granted, your noblest work is to adore.
