Memories in the Rain


A gentle sigh

Fading in the moment

Slips softly by

Like words, gone

Unnoticed in the silence.

Lingering, so patiently

Beneath the cloak of dark sky

Never heard, yet quietly



Despite the faintness

Barely holding on.

Despite the tears, endless

Pouring from above,

The despair still echoes

Stirring the heart

And many memories…


Standing to catch the drops

Fallen upon with fleeting grace.

With closed eyes, to the dark sky

Thoughts come and go like waves.


An intricate continuation,

Countless sorrows and pains

Soon, lost to realization

Washed clean amidst the rain.
