Chasing Rainbows (a poem)
You called me on the phone
and said put on some shoes
we’re going rainbow chasing.
We drove until we found
the best spot to park to view
all the colors and the perfect symmetry.
And we didn’t take out our phones.
Instead we took in the moment.
Just you and I sitting in the car
gazing up at something beautiful.
You said you thought of me
as soon as you saw it.
You know how much I love rainbows
and you just had to share it with me.
And I know one day when I am gray
it will be the sweet times like these
that I cling to and remember.
When all the big picture moments have
vanished with my fading memory
this will be what I recall.
All the colors and symmetry
and you sitting there beside me.
