I saw a rainbow
and thought of you, 
wondering if from heaven
you could see it too.

A rainbow of promise, 
the thought made me cry, 
and overcome with anger: 
there was no promise you wouldn't die.

From heaven, I wonder
if these things you can hear, 
but my pain is too much 
for a place without a tear.

I love you, my sweet baby
I don't know how to make it through
I dream of the day 
when I again will hold you.
