Yes, the song is about the loss of something good, something beautiful, something true, as this video shows. This song has particular meaning when you get older, since the memories of the losses of what was good and beautiful and true in the past become stronger with the increasing decades. We tend to not appreciate what we have until it is absent, no longer present, and this happens only after it sinks in, that such times, such persons are no longer present and they exist as they do now only rooted in memory and nostalgia. This makes us sad, and tears come to our eyes, because we know that what was is gone, never to return. Have you ever seen the rain/ Comin' down on a sunny day?
