Life Show Me Rainbow - Poem by ART PAUL SCHLOSSER

Too many people important to me, died to write a poem about one individual
Many days, weeks, years have gone by and I don't know how to describe my feelings of lost
It's not just the dying but it's the people moving away as well
Depression and loneliness and eating to replace the cost
I keep wishing to meet someone who will take away the frustration and make me feel swell
But I only know they will do the same and the game will end in more heartache pain
Sometimes movies make me smile for a while and take me out of the jail cell
Then I see the news or a friend tells me of one of you more precious then a ring down the drain
And I just wonder why you had to die and what we could have done to change the dice
It would have been nice if the day was sunny or someone could have taken you in
I pray and think good thoughts and try to give advice
But that doesn't always stop the demons of drugs and sex and too much alcohol and gin
People tell people it's cool to commit suicide but it's a lie
God reaches out his hand and speaks softly I love you but some people will never listen
However hope keeps smiling when I see some people change their life and give it a try
So though I become cynical and want to say there ain't a chance
Give up without a shot and just cry and cry and cry
Life shows me a rainbow, plays me a tune and I want to dance
