I remember that night like it was yesterday
You and me and the summer rain
Never again will I love anyone that way
Like I loved you in the summer rain

The rain was soft like the touch of your skin
The gentle caress of the summer rain
When I kissed you, I was lost in that spin
The spin of the drops of summer rain

I saw the flash of lightning and felt the crash of thunder
Feeling the power of the summer rain
I don't want to escape the spell that I'm under
The sound of your heart and the summer rain

I can feel your breath on my neck, as hot as the wind
Blowing through the trees with the summer rain
Stay here with me tonight, my lover, my friend
Hearing our cries melding with the sounds of the summer rain

Kiss me again and leave me never
Feeling the warmth of the summer rain
Love me now, I'll love you forever
My heart skipping a beat when I hear the summer rain

You certainly are full of surprises hon,
* I remember laughing till we almost cried, there at the station that night, I remember looking in your eyes....*
As always beautiful and you touched my heart Sven, thank you.  And that's a double thankyou inuendo using my song and all
*HUGS and NAMASTE*  

 May the world hug you today,
With it's warmth and love.
I pray it whispers a joyful tune in your heart,
That tell you there is a friend sitting in another corner of the world,
Wishing you well and
wishing you love......

Pitter-pattering it's way into my heart.

Gentle flow the rains
of another's memories.
