Will the words you use ever really do it justice?
How can you be sure they really understand what it means to you?
Perhaps it will mean something else to them.
Something greater or less significant.
But no less important or relevant than what it means to you.
Maybe it doesn't matter if they understand.
All that matters is that you told them.
That you shared how you felt and someone listened.
It might not be important to know how they feel.
But then perhaps it might be.
Something wonderful might happen
You may have the same feelings.
Or find you are able to reflect upon theirs and then yours.
They might have even thought of something you haven't even considered.
I don't think it matters any which way
Except in this way
You are not alone.
You may not have shared feelings
You may not have understood feelings
But you will always have people to tell
People to listen
And people to help
And after all
No rainbow is the same.
So why should we be?
