There was rain to protect my thirst; keep my throat always moist and incredulously tender,

There was a tongue to protect my speech; make me speak the most perfect of words at the most perfect of times,

There was sweat to protect my skin; stop it from drying into a shriveled and an inconspicuous heap,
