Let It Rain

It’s been dry as a bone here for about a month now. We had an incredibly wet spring with more rain than anyone could want. But today it rained.

I dedicate this post to my friend Tammy who lost her son Josh, 10 months ago yesterday to a senseless death. And almost to the day on Josh’s death, it rains. Josh loved the rain and now Tammy has allow the rain to wash over her and cleanse her pain. I found this beautiful song by Jon Bon Jovi & Pavarotti, as it was pouring down rain outside my window.

I love you my friend.

XOXO

LET IT RAIN
(Jon Bon Jovi and Luciano Pavarotti, Modena, June 9th 1998)

Last night I had a dream that there would be a morning after
Long days, sunshine, and peace
Long nights of love, forgiveness, and laughter
Maybe it was just a dream but it could be reality
Children are like planting seeds, you’ve got to let their flowers grow
Don’t you know

Fà che piova, (Let it rain)
Fà che il cielo mi lavi il dolor (Let heaven wash away my pain)
Fà che piova (Let it rain)
che sia la pace il nome d’amor (That peace would be the name of love)

Through the rain I saw a child just like my child
Someone’s son or daughter
I watched as they played for a while
I wanted to cry, those babies just smiled
Maybe it was just a dream, but it should be reality
A child is just God’s sign that peace and love are seeds to make
tomorrow grow

Fà che piova, (Let it rain)
Fà che il cielo mi lavi il dolor (Let heaven wash away my pain)
Fà che piova (Let it rain)
che sia la pace il nome d’amor (That peace would be the name of love)

Go on, we’ve tried war
No one wants peace more
Than the children who ask their dads why

Fà che piova, (Let it rain)
Fà che il cielo mi lavi il dolor (Let heaven wash away my pain)
Fà che piova (Let it rain)
che sia la pace il nome d’amor (That peace would be the name of love)
