Music of the Rain

Close my eyes
And the moment is gone
Nothing lasts forever
But the earth and sky

Open my eyes
And the moment is here
Raindrops falling
In the here and now

Close my eyes
And long for yesterday
Remember tears and laughter
Gone forever, only memories now

Open my eyes
Hear the music
Of rain falling
Under soft night sky

Close my eyes
And fear tommorrow
Trying to guard
Against the uncertainties

Open my eyes
And the rain has stopped
Feel not regret for music gone
But joy for the silence of now

And spring rains are coming anew
