I walked in the rain,
Trying to hide the tears,
Feeling numb with every burst of pain.
Would I ever see the light?
Or twinklers to guide me through the night?
I felt my steps falter,
And crashed onto the ground, kissing the earth,
Wishing an end would arrive.
Am I looking for an escape?
Or ceased to keep the faith?
The horizon blurred before my eyes,
And darkness seemed to engulf my plight.
Suddenly, I could no longer feel the rain,
Though knew it kept pouring.
I pondered over what had changed,
And then felt your fingers entwine mine.
I tried to look, unable to make out who you were,
But saw your umbrella that had become my shelter.
You held my hand and helped me up,
While I still tried to figure out your face.
Who are you? Why are you here when no one else was?
Before I could think, I had begun walking with you
Almost as in a trance, but breathed a change in the air.
The rain no longer fell, nor was the wind too harsh.
The clouds had begun to recede.
After a while, you paused and faced me
I looked at you, dumbfounded,
While you began,
It’s okay to fall and learn to forgive
Forgive yourself, my friend.
It is not easy, I said and turned away,
You held me around and pointed towards the distant lights
What do you see? You asked
Buildings, what else? I said vexedly.
Do you know why you could say they were buildings? You smiled
Because I know what a building is, I answered with a smirk.
And how do you identify them? A mischievous grin deepens your dimples
The light from the windows, how else? It’s a dark night.
That’s what I wanted you to see.
Even when you think you are not doing enough,
You can be your light
You can show yourself the path
You can guide you through the night
For you are shinning from your window
From your star.
I gazed deep into your eyes,
Wanting to ask what you meant
But, knew I had found my answer.
The skies began to lighten.
Are you a dream? I manage to ask
You laughed and said, it’s no more a dream
The dawn awaits you.
I look up and see rainbow-tinted circles of light
That’s magical, I whispered
The world seems beautiful when you choose to believe in your galaxy
We will meet again, you smile
Where are you going? I ask afraid
I will be here for you
Just close your eyes and think of the rainbow,
The colors will bring you here
To the place, you can keep coming back to
To the place, you can call home.
