Who Came To Taint The Rainbows

I once thought love was universal.
Felt to feel within everyone in view.
And then one day I awakened to see,
People finding misery to grieve...
To accept and be believed.

I once thought that love,
Was what everyone knew.
And wishing it to be shared,
With all who cared to pursue it.
To keep as if attached and glued to it.

But then from my eyes,
What I perceived was rain...
Had been the witnessing of dripping tears.
And not from the sky above,
Was the sobbing heard with my ears.

Who came to taint the rainbows?
To then shield the Sun with clouds.
Who allowed gloomy shades of blue,
To remove happy smiles I remembered...
And knew?

Who came to paint the times now found,
With sadness and fear to find all around.
And just about everywhere there's confusion,
As a choice to choose on many minds.
With their faces looking down as if lost,
And confined to complaints and whining.

Who came to taint the rainbows?
To then shield the Sun with clouds.
Who allowed happiness to drift,
To never come back to stay...
With a permanence that sits unresisted.
Who came to visit just to do this?
