I've taken flight in fantasy,
On a brilliant summer day.
While floating on a cloud of white,
My child came out to play.
She's dancing on a rainbow,
Sliding down a star,
Twirling with her bear of brown,
As beauty fills her heart.
She leaps into the crimson,
Rolls joyfully in blue,
Bathed in golden sunlight,
She hugs magenta too!
Copper shimmers in her hair,
As she giggles silver sounds,
Blowing opalescent bubbles,
While turquoise drops rain down.
She prances through the purples,
In many shades and tones,
And dips her toe in sapphire seas,
Edged in silver foam.
The coloured lights surround her,
And the brown bear who's her friend,
'Cause she's dancing on a rainbow,
And her world feels safe again!
Each time on Rachel's birthday or the anniversary of her death I've posted this poem but this year I feel I know those that will read to know me well enough to understand that I'm trying to be at peace with myself so include the only photograph I have of us...(no laughing it is 24 odd years ago)..
You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
