Rainbow’s End

Been searching so long now
For a cure to the pain
Too much love swept away by the rain

Been so giving with my heart
I was doomed from the start
Learned my lesson, now I’ll never be the same

Ran fast as I can
To the promise of man
No sins did he claim or confess

Worldly love by my side
But it withered and died
Beware oaths made of passion and flesh

Since my wild days of old
Had my dreams bought and sold
Waiting for the one day your face I’d behold

Much more than a friend
On your strength I’ll depend
You’re my treasure at the rainbow’s end

If fate should pass by
Through this dark moonlit sky
I’ll deny her request with no shame


Walk this road all alone
Find my way on my own
Shed no tears for there’s no one to blame

Back at the crossroads
I bound my soul up with steel
No more sorrow no more love can I feel

But it’s dark in this place
A million miles from your face
Take my love with my trust as the seal

Since my wild days of old
Had my dreams bought and sold
Searching for someone I may call a friend

Here on God’s golden shore
I’ll wander no more
I found Jesus at the rainbow’s end

This has a wonderful, bluesy feel to it, almost as if it should be sung. As a song, the irregular rhyme scheme would work well, but you might want to consider a more consistant rhyme pattern if you ever re-visit this poem. Nicely done!

DAVEY for most likely to become a song lyric. Nice job.
