I'll Build You a Rainbow
by Kapena



I'll build you a rainbow,
way high up above,
send down the sun beams,
plums full of love,
sprinkle down raindrops,
teardrops of joy,
I'll be happy in spring time,
watching over my boy.

Once there was a boy named Jaimie,
he had lots of great friends,
but his greatest friend was his mom,
not in some sissy way or anything like that,
she just was different from all the other moms.
see while all the other moms were going to thier
fashion shows, and brdge parties,
she'll stay home and have long talks and bike rides with Jaimie.
and at one time she was even considered to be one of the best
football players on the block.
one day Jaimie was called home from school
and as he was running home
he saw this great big ambulance parked infront of his house.
and as he entered down the hallway
he saw his dad talking to a doctor
his dad said"Jaimie, come in your mom wants to see you."
and as he opened the door he saw his mom laying there
and she turned her head and said
"Hey big Jay" even though he wasn't big.
but he had a big heart
she said"Jaimie, I'm leaving and I won't be coming back"
Jaimie says" Bu-but why mom...who'm I goin to play with
and who'm I goin to talk too... and how'm I goin to know
that your there mom?"
his mom says"Because Jaimie, families are forever"

I'll build you a rainbow,
way high up above,
send down the sun beams, (send down the sun beams)
plums full of love,
sprinkle down rain drops, (sprinkle down rain drops)
tear drops of joy,
I'll be happy in spring time
watching over my boy.

she closed her eyes and she was gone,
as the ambulance pulled away
Jaimie' dad broke down and started to cry.
as Jaimie felt his dad's tear drops on his cheek,
he started to cry too.
but as he looked up over the sky
sure enough there was a great big rainbow over his house.
and he said"Dad, daddy it's alright
because families are forever."

I'll build you rainbow,
way high up above,
send down the sun beams, (send down the sun beams)
plums full of love,
sprinkle down rain drops, (sprinkle down rain drops)
tear drops of joy,
I'll be happy in spring time
watching over my boy.
I'll be happy in heaven watching over my boy.
I love you mom.
