i’d like to follow the rainbow
and play with the colors that arch
from the sea extending to the mountains
losing luster as i await and watch

how happy i am when it shows
it cools me at noon ’till it’s gone
at times the colors brighten like a rose
then lightens and fades like the setting sun

in the lives of men if compared
born and die in God’s perfect will
their time to be saints and sinners if dared
laughter, cheers, or bad luck can be downhill

rainbow, if the sky is your place
teach me how to hang high up there
bravely awaits the time to leave no trace
to appear and bring joy to all somewhere

Why ?

Too many stars glitter up in the sky
i don’t know which of them watch me by
too many reasons came to my surprise
which is the answer to my question why

The moon is up and tomorrow it’s gone
it’s in the horizon, next day, the twilight sun
in the night, it’s back over my head
not shining in full, only half instead

It snows in the mountains, hills, and plains
sand dunes in the desert, not visited by rain
in the tropics, the seasons are wet and dry
i’m puzzled, do they have the same sky?

I really wonder, why we have an earth

so many people die, so many giving birth
traditions, colors, and beliefs unfamiliar
please explain, my stars, why there are wars

I have to say, “Goodnight, Stars of the Night”
i need to sleep, tell the world not to fight
hoping that in my gentle and placid retire
tomorrow is a reality of a story justified…
