Looking for a Rainbow

Looking for a Rainbow

A Poem by Bob B

When the day is murky

And clouds obstruct the sun,

I look for shining moments

Before the day is done.

I know it often seems

The clouds are here to stay.

Still, I hope a rainbow

Will brighten up my day.


I trust that at some point

I won't be wondering when

The gloomy clouds will leave us

And the sun will shine again.

Call it optimism

Or my naïveté,

But I still seek a rainbow

To brighten up my day.


The stormy clouds create

A harsh reality

And make the silver linings

Difficult to see.

Do not be disheartened

By what nay-sayers say.

You might see a rainbow

To brighten up your day.


I know we have to take

The bitter with the sweet.

A setback here or there

Doesn't mean defeat.

Just hang on to hope

And don't be led astray.

You will find that rainbow

To brighten up your day.
