I seem to fall from heaven

As if to rise no more;

But I do.


Thunder announces my falling,

Lightning lights my way;

My coming is forever,

My going plus a day.


I bring life to the dormant;

I carry away decay

And most folk tend to get angry

If I dare for another day to stay.


Stop me if you can,

Control me if you dare

But never get overconfident

My way out is always there.

I’m omnipotent,

I’m omnipresent;

I’m a sower and a reaper;

I’m a grower and a destroyer.


I am rain,

One drop or two;

Hundreds or thousands

Multiplied by two’s,

One thing is sure,

I outnumber you.
