After the storm had blown away,
I saw a rainbow up above.
It spoke to me of peace,
It spoke to me of love.
I saw the rainbow glowing,
As it replaced the stormy skies,
I felt a fear down deep inside,
As it reflected in my eyes.
In a shadow I stood there,
Tall and strong and bold,
On my cheeks ran silver teardrops,
Some were new and some were old.
My love for you
Glows in each silver tear,
The colors run together now,
And wipes away my fears.

I will always need you, your gentle kindness,
The wisdom you share from life's journey,
The light you shine to banish the darkness,
How you find what is special in me.
I will always hold to your strong hands
And know they gently cradle my heart
As you guide me through life's wilderness
Sharing beauty she alone can impart
I will always listen to the words you share
And see the vision I have seen in your eyes
That the world can become better if we care
And with love we can see a better place arise
I will always feel you here by my side
Guiding me and helping me to stand
There is no obstacle we cannot take in stride
Or distance that cannot be spanned
And even now in time's shifting sands
I know you will ever be there for me
Ever as close as a heartbeat will we stand
No farther than a whisper for all the time to be
So if you walk on ahead to the stardust fields
I will know that you still watch over me
So that you can share the truths that path yields
Where we will all share in eternity
