And there I was
With a lit match
In my hand
Staring at the bridge
Between us.
My hand was shaking.
My eyes were teary,
My heart was pounding,
My mind was clear.
The match fell.
Everything burned
In front of my eyes,
My love for you,
The dreams we shattered,
My future with you,
The hope I had
That all would be OK
All turned to ashes.
I frowned as the smoke
Pointed to the sky
Turning the clouds black
And my day dark.
But then the rain fell.
It washed away
My tears and sorrow,
My pain and my grief.
Before my eyes
I saw a rainbow
And the sun appeared.
My day was never brighter.
I turned around,
I smiled,
I laughed
Then I walked away.
