I’d never forget how I dropped
From her unprepared arms;
Like the rock from the mountaintop,
I stumbled down, she never cared.
The pearls in my eyes, I kept,
Under the waterfall, I wept.

Besieged was I – I realized,
By her, by this love she ignored.
Like the rock, I was paralyzed,
But the pouring water restored,
And awakened the pearls that slept,
Under the waterfall, I wept.

My head was bowed, my body bent,
As I received the mountain’s tears.
Pearls of mine followed the current;
I freed all that I hid for years;
And this heart on which she stepped,
Under the waterfall, it wept.

The water braced my pearls’ crystal,
And dried the flood that soaked my eyes.
My love ought to be eternal,
But the water did wash my cries.
If only I stood when you left,
Maybe I’d laughed, I hadn’t wept.
