OH PRECIOUS DROPLET

Written by: Manaledi Lerato Mapena

OH PRECIOUS DROPLET
From ten thousand meters above
You melted from an ice
Slowly you flew down
And unlike a tear from my eyes
You seen pure, so natural
You flew against my skin
So you stopped rushing
You flew against the earth
I could not recognize you from then
Oh precious droplet
Why did you disappear like that?
