Translate 'As Time Flies'

Do you know why that cloud burst?

Do you know why that cloud burst?
Just to quench earth's thirst.
Do you know why people died?
Nature has way to make us realize
 There is more to life.

No matter if, people were rich or poor
They were treated same at its doors.
When nature comes out to play
Influence and money have no say.
It has no relations
It feels no love
In its fury it just will not stop.
Sad and neglected for years,
Revenge it wants for the wear and tear.

It is never too late to learn
Let us mend ways before it turns stern
It has showed us where we lay,
How a cloud made us stray.

Let us learn to love nature
.It alone holds the key for the future.
Without it, money is of no use.
Let us protect it before it becomes a muse.
