Rain Drops On My Heart
When there is disease all around
When my heart is parched and dry,
When ungrateful and dishonest bipeds are around
Some humans come my way.
Their kindness is like drops of rain on my parched heart.
Little deeds of kindness moisten my heart
My heart comes back to its happy form.
Oh, drops of rain! Oh, drops of rain!
Come again and again.
Soothe me with your magical shower,
Nourish my heart with your wondrous touch;
Fill my heart and seal it with the happiness clutch.
