She Collected Rainbows

She collected rainbows
~ along the way ~
wherever she did go
and adorned her home
with treasures
to let her husband know
that she loved things
of beauty
and things that
catch the light
so she collected
rainbows
and kept them
in her sight!
then one day
her time had come
to be with god
above
the rainbows
she collected
were left behind
in love.
for brighter are the heavens
and in the stars
at night
and brighter are the heavens
amid gods
shining light
she's still collecting
rainbows
but bigger ones, I'm told
the ones that
you and I can see
she can truly hold.
