It Can't Rain All The Time

When I'm blue I listen to this song by Jane Siberry called "It Can't Rain All The Time" and get that "feeling" when I listen to a song that touches my heart and seems to understand me. Many people find comfort when they discover songs, lyrics or poems that express their emotions. Mom always used to get frustrated with me in high school when I would play what she called "depressing music" but it actually helped me get through whatever I was dealing with. She quickly realized and understood that we all have different ways of expressing things near to our hearts. I loved Mom's ways of letting us know she cared by allowing us to express ourselves. Now we have to do the same for her and also deal with our emotions in the process. To all those fighting cancer and to their loved ones, I hope this inspires you, in your own ways to do the same. Love Always.

"It Can't Rain All The Time"

We walk the narrow path
Beneath the smoking skies
Sometimes you can barely tell the difference
Between darkness and light

Do we have faith
In what we believe?
The truest test
Is when we cannot
When we cannot see

I hear pounding feet in the, in the streets below
And the, and the women crying and the, and the children know
That there's, there's something wrong
It's hard to believe that love will prevail

It won't rain all the time
The sky won't fall forever
And though the night seems long
Your tears won't fall forever

When I'm lonely
I lie awake at night
And I wish you were here
I miss you

Can you tell me
Is there something more
To believe in?
Or is this all there is?

Last night I had a dream
You came into my room
You took me into your arms
Whispering and kissing me
And telling me to still believe

Within the emptiness of
The burning cities against which
We set our darkest of selves

Until finally I felt safe and warm
I fell asleep in your arms
And when I awoke I cried again
For you were gone
Can you hear me?

It won't rain all the time
The sky won't fall forever
And though the night seems long
Your tears won't fall forever



  1. Thinking of your family and your Mom. I am so glad that so far things are looking good. I lost my Mom 2 years ago to Cancer, and she wasn't as enthusiastic in her battle unfortunately; I wish she had been, but those were her choices. So I love coming here and seeing updates on how your Mom is doing and her will to live. Best, Rebecca
