A lullaby for when we struggle to keep on believing in our ability to meet violence an unstoppable will to change

Rain Night
Cindy Kallet

If I stood out in the rain night
My only light a candle, a million miles away
Would you lay down your fire as I raised mine
Would you not kill again

chorus Oh, when you’re near me
Oh, my love, oh, my joy
There’s nothing ever to weary me
Oh, my darling one

If I walked as one of many more
My only time the present, now and here
Would you undo those bombs, one
One for each step taken
And let a future draw near

If I took no food on this one day
My only life this water, a life or more away
Would one child more than live, no cries of hunger, no cries
Would she not starve again

If I stood out in the rain night
My only light this candle, a million miles away
Would you lay down your fire as I raised mine
Would you never kill again
