Never Let Your Rainbow Fade (rehashed)

A rainbow appears
when there is sun and rain
The weather’s equivalent
of joy and pain

An arc of colour
created by reflection of light
This optical illusion
gifts us a magical sight 

As the rain subsides
the rainbow fades away
The sun breaks through
revealing a brighter day

Soak up the sunshine
sing and dance in the rain 
Relish moments of joy
push through the pain  

Let the light in your heart
reflect the beauty inside
Be true to yourself
hold your head high with pride

Take the rough with the smooth
the light with the shade
Ride through the storm
never let your rainbow fade

A poem brimming with optimism. Much needed in today's world.
