Summer rain


There's a girl standing in the rain
She seems lost and frowning in pain
All she wants is a friend for a day
She's alone on a warm summer's day
She stares at the world with hate
I can see her eyes screaming in pain
Would someone please befriend her?
And listen so her pain can be heard
Tell her that in time it will all be well
And make her dance in the rain instead

Let it rain, let it rain
On a warm summers day
Make it rain, make it rain
Let out all the hidden pain

There's a boy dancing in the rain
He seems grateful for everyday
I can tell that he's nine years of age
He doesn't know of the things that cause us pain
He doesn't know of the things that cause us rage
How I wish we could all be nine again
Before we knew reality
Before we lost our innocence

Let it rain, let it rain
On a very warm summers day
Dance in the rain, dance in the rain
Before in time we ask ourselves why

There's an old man sitting by the window
He smiles at the world while it rains
He seems happy though sitting alone
I think he's walking down memory lane
He seems joyful of the life that he lived
I think he's seen so many wonderful things
Like the summer rain and he says:
"It seems like a very beautiful day"

Let it rain, let it rain
So we don't grow bitter and old
It's such a beautiful day
Let it not go to waste
So let us dance in the rain
Before the world tells us that we can't
Let it rain, let it rain, life is an unpredictable thing.

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
