"I think the only reason people hold on to memories so tightly is because memories are the only things that don't change, when everything and everyone else does."

You're gone, but I
Still feel you here.
You are a soft
spoken melody
whispering in my ear.

The rain drops hitting
your skin, are the tears
that I have cried.
As you walk alone,
silently tonight.

What happened,
to the love in your heart?
Where is the umbrella
now that we are apart?

I will stay alone tonight
listening to the rain
as we go our own ways.

I guess our love was never
meant to remain.

Gone you are.
Gone with the rain.
You left without a word,
nor a sound.

Where ever we may go
there will always be one
thing I will know.

The day the last
little drop
falls to the earth,
is the day that I will
forget you.

The author's comments:
After my boyfriend and I broke up, I sat at my window every night. It rained a lot. I remembered how we used to talk about how we would both love to kiss in the pouring rain. But it never happened. And as I listened to the rain, the only thing I could think about was him.

Okay first of all, I love how I am the first to comment. I really love this poem, it's so good. I love the way you wrote it too. I don't know if you know though, a stanza is only 4 lines though. :)


Again, it's amazing and I love it. :)
