Rain upon my window

 

Rain upon my window,

Rain upon my abode,

Rain trickling down a path,

that only the rain drop knows.

 

Itís falling on the flowers,

Itís falling on the trees,

Itís seeping in the ground

and going where it please.

 

It will finish up one day

flowing to the sea.

One big round trip,

wouldnít you agree?

 

Clouds fly over oceans,

sucking up the rain and

taking it over the mountains

round and round like a game.

 

And now thereís;

Rain upon my window,

rain upon my abode,

rain trickling down a path

that only the rain drop knows.
