Let's Catch a Rainbow

Once again God puts before us
One more challenge, one more wall
One more day to contemplate
The meaning of it all

One more cruel unanswered question
One more heartache we must bear
One more thorn among the roses
One more grief to share

Take my hand and come with me
Let's live the best that we can live
Let's cry and laugh and give our children
All that we can give

Let's count our treasures once again
Let's laugh about the things we've done
Let's talk about the best of times
And battles that we've won

Let's take a grandchild by the hand
Let's show him things he's never seen
Let's tell him all about the wonders
Well beyond his wildest dream

And in these moments we'll discover
Peace and joy in many ways
Let's make the best and live the best
With every passing day

Let's walk together side by side
In memories of the times we've shared
Let's dance a dance and try to catch
A rainbow here and there

Elizabeth Santos

Pretty much said it all on that one, and beautifully presented as well.

Oh, my fair Elizabeth-

You are love personified through
thoughts so artistically penned.
Working on a ~Rainbow~
to post for you as soon as the
tears of reflection let me see again.

*I love ya' gal.
God has blessed your rainbow.
Love ~*Marge*~

One step is all you have to take
In 'moments' day by day
Those 'moments' will a rainbow make
For you along the way.

You are both in my prayers.

Love
Denise

you have no idea how much this has helped me liz,

so many times ive dwelled on the point of it all and youve made me realize, it is just the battles weve won, the good times weve had, and the rainbows we so often grasp for, but rarely catch, what a beautiful moment when you get your hands on one

Thank you for your responses to this poem, each and every one touches my heart. It is not an easy road we travel, but I read this poem to my extended family last night and found that it was worth the writing.
Love to all
Liz
