Do you need that umbrella?

She'd always get caught in the heavy rain. She'd walk in the heavy rain if she has to. She doesn't care if she'd get a headache afterwards. She'd just go through it. She doesn't mind getting wet all the time. Then came that one day. He came and brought her an umbrella. It wasn't a huge one, just a simple one; good enough for the both of them. He walked with her through the rain. He wouldn't let a single drop of rain touch the surface of her head. Every time a storm heads her way, he'd come and take her to a safer place. She'd get scared of the sound of thunder, but he'd come and say, "it's okay". The sun in her sky smiled just like he did. The weather was nice when he was around. Not too hot, nor too cold. Just nice. But it was never perfect. No no no. Then came that one day, a storm headed her way, he never came. She got back to walking in the rain by herself, without an umbrella to depend on. She'd get headaches, but she doesn't even want to bother. What more could she possibly do besides hoping that her sun in her sky will shine brightly again? How could she make the sun in her sky smile like that baby sun in Teletubbies? It stopped raining for a while. But then it started to rain a bit again. oh well. At least it's not raining heavily, right? At least she can walk without an umbrella.
It's just a matter of time.

She can't stop singing, "I wanna know what love is, I want you to show me.." before she met him. Gladly, she stopped annoying herself with that verse after he came. But he's gone now, long gone. But, actually he's not really gone. He's just not there. Great. Now she doesn't know what song to sing.
No matter.
It's only a matter of time.
