The Rainbow

I stood outside in a blizzard
And in the summer when it drizzled
In a field when it poured down rain
You told me it was the world crying
Sick of all the treacherous pain

I didn't understand
"But the world is a perfect place"
I used to demand
You told me one day that,
"We don't always live in grace."

Then the day came when the doctors said
"He doesn't have much longer left to live"
I cried so hard and my heart filled with dread
How could life take so much from
one who only loved to give?

I stayed by your side for days on end
Scared to lose my one true friend
It rained for weeks that felt like years
And I felt as if we were drenched in tears

Until the day you asked me to talk
And you took me outside for a walk
Telling me that the rain lit up the sky
And that though you'd no longer be here ; you'd never really die

You pointed up towards the clouds
And to my surprise, the sky was full of colour
"It's a rainbow just for you," my friend then told me.
"The rain makes the colours true."

Many years later, I still believe what he has showed me
If the world did not cry
Without the rain we would not see
The rainbow in the sky.

you could have done better with most of it, except the last stanza.
the last stanza was amazing, and beautiful, and true.

if you could write the whole poem like that, you'd e winning prizes
