A Raindrop For Me

Little Raindrop falling from the sky
Says to the thundercloud, “Hey thanks for the ride”
“I’d like to hang around but I’ve got to go”
“They have been waiting for me down on the ground below”

Little thirsty seed, she's dreaming underground
She has held a flower in her heart for so long now
Even the longest drought has got to end someday
She feels a drop of rain fall upon her head, she is awake

And she says…

“I never knew that Life could be so sweet,
And I am thankful that there is a raindrop for me”

Little flower growing strong, she's pushing up through the ground
Time to spread those petals out and have look around
Everybody’s gotta bloom someday and be what they can be
She’s got her best colors on for all the world to see

Little honey bee, he's  flying high.  he is on a mission
Looking for that nectar and the colony is counting on him
Just before he is about to give up hope
He sees a pretty flower shining bright in the field below

… and he says

“I never knew that Life could be so sweet,
And I am thankful that there is a flower for me”

Little beehive singing, “Have you heard the latest buzz?
“Time to celebrate.  You know the spring has sure been good to us”
We have worked so hard and we have worked so long
But the honeycomb is full and now the dance is on.

Old beekeeper heading out back to collect the honey
He puts it in a jar and sells it downtown to the bakery 
He says, “Little honey bees please don’t sting me
I promise you my friends that I will take only what I need”

“I never knew that Life could be so sweet,
And I am thankful that there is some honey for me”

Me and my sweet tooth down at the bakery
My nose against the glass so I can see all the pastries
There is so much to choose from, it's more than I can take
But I think I’ve got my mind set on that perfect little honey cake

I never knew that Life could be so sweet,

And I am thankful that there was a raindrop for me
