Again it will come, the season
That drizzling world of downpour,
But, we won't be together anymore!
And then again will come rains...
The same desperate drops, on sand,
The same earthy smell shall rise,
And the thick curtain of rain
Will tremble lift and fall with a sigh!
Unbroken chain of droplets
Spread like the mysterious night,
Far away, a tiny flicker,
Lost in the waters howling crest!
How can it fight the ferocity !
Impounding fury, so bare, so raw-
My heart pounds with a boom
Thunder Then echoes my song!
Lightening then, streaks, across the sky !
Wet is the world and wet am I..!
