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

Waiting...

-

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.
