Dwindling into darkness
Crumbling with fear
And as I fall down I am swallowed by shadows.
Then suddenly, I feel the teardrops falling on my face
Oh dear! The mighty teardrops
Sliding down from your eyes
Sprinkle life on me, reviving my senses.
Then the rain comes down
Washing away my bruises
Your tears mingle with the raindrops.
Oh the rain! Enticing us with its tempting melody,
We hum, we love, we sing together.
No reparations, no abrasion from the past
As we cry together in sheer joy.
We indulge in the rain,
Coddling each other with somber love.
