The Vanishing Rainbow
 By Diann Sheldon

When I was just a child
Back many years ago
I fell in love with rainbows
They touched my spirit so

The colors arched across the sky
Were magical to me
It was just a miracle
In my child mind you see

I did not know how they were made
Until I grew with age
And then they killed the magic
With their text book page by page

Before the books I thought that God
Had a paintbrush in his hand
And he would paint with outstretched arm
Rainbows above the land

For years the magic was destroyed
Gods paint brush gone from hand
Until I had my vision dream
Then began to understand

The magic is within us
Seated deep inside
The rainbows hit the buttons
Emotions open wide

As the rainbow fades away
And melts into the sky
Like the vanishing rainbow
The message makes me high

All the messages I get
I cannot put into words
It is all the feelings and emotions
As they begin to merge
