The colors of His rainbow
I see everyday,
children dressed for school
but wanting only to play.
They come from all directions
north, south, east and west,
all corners of the world
I'm at my best.
We greet with a smile
and a "Good Morning",
I'll be there for them
the children all knowing.
We cross the big street
sometimes hand in hand,
to the other side
safely in a band.
When they are with me
giving their trust,
I feel their gentle hearts
I've been touched.

~Lorraine~

Aw, Lorraine, this is adorable.  
Sweet, nicely written poem about something
that we forget to say thank you for.
People who take care of people and keeping
them safe.  Thank you Lorraine.
