The Rainbow Connection

There is a song that was written by Paul Williams that Kermit the Frog sings in the opening of The Muppet Movie. It's a song about rainbows and believing that they have a special something about them. I've always loved this song since the first time I heard it. The tune, the words, it just makes me feel happy, gives me hope.

I'm still having a hard time with this whole negative thing, much harder than I thought I would be at this point. The days aren't bad because I have Chase and he keeps me way too busy to sit and feel sorry for myself and the dream that was not meant to be. I don't know how I could survive this ordeal without him (and his Daddy of course, let's not forget him). But the nights are so hard... when it's quiet and both of my guys are lost in slumber. My mind won't break away from what makes my heart ache and I hate it. I find myself dreading the evenings when I know what's coming. I have got to get past this, but I don't know how.

So since that time is coming and things will be quiet all too soon I decided to listen to this wonderful song that has let me feel that hope I so desperately need. That hope for which some unknown reason it brings to me, to my heart. I know it's not quite the same as hearing it, but here are the lyrics just in case someone else needs some hope too.


Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that
and someone believed it,
and look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its spell,
we know that it's probably magic....

Have you been half asleep
and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
It's something that I'm supposed to be.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.
La, la la, La, la la la, La Laa, la la, La, La la laaaaaaa

thank you Jessica -- listening to that reminds me of Kahla romping around on the bed with her Miss Piggy sheets! It makes me smile
