To everyone, rain falls alike
Only the amount may differ
When you feel alone on the rainy street,
Please, do not be sad,
Don’t feel disheartened
I’ll be your umbrella
Even on hot days, though inadequate,
You can use me as a parasol
Whether it rains
Or snows
Or the sun shines strong and bright
I’ll be your umbrella
Don’t miss me
Don’t lose me
