When You Came - Poem by Jhonas Lumanlan

When you came, the rain stopped falling
I found the rainbow hiding behind the mountain
I rode a bicycle to it flying…singing
singing like I’d never sing like it again

and I held your hands like you held mine
a kiss on the lips was like death and life
even the night brought me sunshine
your smile saved me from the cruel strife

and from my sleepless bed you came
you came and conquered what darkness did
when I flew and when I flew lame
you made the sky spring anew from a seed.
