And from time to time, a hurricane’s would possibly,
Tossing and turning, like a wood coaster’s flight.

Melting hearts with its contact, like a love parade.
Oh, California’s slender rain, a lover’s plea,
Wrapped in vulnerability, but so superbly free.
In its modesty, it paints an image divine,
Igniting passions, in hearts that intertwine.
So let it fall, this rain so slim and slight,
For in its weak spot, it unveils love’s would possibly.
California’s slender rain, a fascinating embrace,
Romancing the world, with class and charm—
As I sit right here looking of the opened window, respiration the scent of the rain, I shut my eyes and pray to the rain.
