That Rainbow

Did you ever find that one?
That rainbow in the sky?
So obvious it wouldn't last
But didn't you ever try?
You didn't want to believe it,
Still you didn't want to leave it.
And rainbows have a tendency
To seem so near
And just disappear
When you reach out and try to touch.
Seeming right there,
And still practically nowhere.
And sooner or later it's gone anyway.
And though you never admitted it
You knew all along
That it would disappear...
That one day it wouldn't even
Have the illusion of being so near.

The End
