When Love Is Brief - Poem by Gerry Legister

The autumn rain fell briefly that day
replace by a sudden appearance of the rainbow,
illuminating without warning, all that was grey
and the sky turned the colours into a glow.

I became happy as do lovers sprung into relief
entourage thrill to consumed veil emotions.
But if the sudden change brought luck or grief
on either side of the day, choices makes decisions.

To play or stay with hopes dawn badly down
lulled by pain, unable to see the appearing light
behind the cloudy paths staying longer on,
when the sky is starless, with bleak winds blown.

If love is brief, happiness is a slender treat
some dreams may end in grief, become incomplete,
and trust will beat quickly into a rapid retreat
overtaken in defeat repeated mistakes we hate.

If love is brief; will there be any other dreams?
that We could chase? If we could follow our rainbow
after showers wash away the hurt with tears
from our eyes, what thrilling places can we go?
