Into each life a little rain must fall

But without rain there’d be no life at all

No life, no love, no laughter and no song

No reason to believe

No hope to carry on


Rachael…. you rock me to the core

You lift me up and then you lift me up some more

Our time though short and oh so bittersweet

Brings music to my soul every time we meet


There’ll come a time when every sorrow wanes

And in its place only joy remains

That speaks your name forever in my heart

And ever holds you close whenever we’re apart


Rachael…this world will be a poorer place

Without you…without your courage and your grace

Sweet child of love shine brightly like the sun

To help me carry on whenever you are gone
