Let me go out in the rain
Not to play with the falling drops,
But to shed tears trapped inside
Without anyone getting a hint.
Open tears will make close ones sad
And lead strangers to ridicule me,
But the rain will give me a chance
To cry to the last tear in me.
In the morning when the rain ceases,
Leaves and flowers will be clean
Paths will be free of dust
And the air will be light and cool.
With the tears inside me drained out
To the last possible droplet,
My heart will be light and clean
Ready to smile once again.
