I’m a bright yellow coloured umbrella,
With black and green pattern on me.
There are elephants and camels,
To surround and protect me.
I was part of the display,
At the Bombay Store.
But then a girl walked in,
And picked me up as her own.
She showed me most of Bombay,
But I yearn to see more.
And then I heard the good news,
She’s leaving this shore.
With excitement and expectancy,
I’m lying on the floor.
She’s busy packing things,
One after the other it goes.
I got saved by her mom,
As my companion has forgotten me.
After the reminder, here I go in the bag
Full of excitement and glee.
Gurgaon it is, a new city
But where art thou, rains?
It’s dark and gloomy in here,
I want to go out in the light and into the rains.
It’s been days in Gurgaon,
But there’s no rains,
Every day I hope my companion will take me,
But there’s no need for me and it pains
Oh oh, I hear the thunder,
I think my time has come.
I’ll be out of this darkness, into the light and rains
I finally feel happy and so I hum.
She’s getting ready so I wait patiently,
There’s a car outside the door.
And then she gets a call,
I feel my heart sink and I sing no more.
She walked away from me,
Turned to look at me but then was gone.
I felt an anguish engulf me,
But I didn’t moan.
I’m waiting for the rains; I know it won’t be long
Rains will always come, and it’ll be my gain.
I’ll be happy once more with my companion
Out in the light and into the rain…
