Rainbow in The Cloud

When it looks like the sun weren't gonna shine anymore Allah put a rainbow in the cloud Did you catch my smile on the train today? It was meant for you A piece of me to lighten your day A ray of hope, to remind you that humanity is still alive Did you catch my smile today? When it looks like the sun weren't gonna shine anymore Allah put a rainbow in the cloud Good morning How are you? Yes you, I see you We are not just mindless robot going about our day We are flesh, bone and many more I see you my fellow being I see you When it looks like the sun weren't gonna shine anymore Allah put a rainbow in the cloud Do you need a hand? A hug A friend Sit with you Someone to hear your story Someone to make you feel human I am a human being, you can never be alien to me When it looks like the sun weren't gonna shine anymore Allah put a rainbow in the cloud At your darkest hour call on me At your sadness moment come to me In your time of need reach out to me Let me be your rainbow in the cloud Then you can go on to be someone else rainbow in cloud When it looks like the sun weren't gonna shine anymore Allah put a rainbow in the cloud We are all meant to be someone's rainbow in the cloud

Thank you Ibrahim for this beautiful poem and for putting the link to Maya Angelou's video; she is truly inspiring and so are you. If we could all be united, whatever our flag, our belief, our names, our color, and our gods . . . and, as Maya Angelou said: "prepare yourself, so that you may be a rainbow in someone else's cloud . . . someone who may not call god the same name you call god, if they call god at all.":) Amitiés

Thank you so much Darren White, but I can't take all the credit. I had the pleasure of coming across this video 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nYXFletWH4' and it was just inspiring.
