chasing rainbows

when I was young
I tried to catch a rainbow
I ran as fast as I could
but I never got to it
so I stood and watched
the beauty fade instead
the rainbow was like
brush strokes in the sky
so perfectly painted
I knew there could only be One
who was the artist
I wasn't after the pot of gold
though that would have been nice
I just wanted to touch the rainbow
the rainbow that made me believe
there was something else out there
so I chased it
I wanted to ask it
what it would be like in the end
I thought that maybe it would know
but I couldn't catch it
so I stood and watched
the colors fade
but I never forgot
the day
when I chased that rainbow
and I had to let it go

Just one of my early childhood memories...
