Rainy Interlude

As I listen to the rain
It whispers memories to me
Thoughts unbound, inside my head
And feelings that won’t let me be

The rain taps my roof and walls
Reminding me of time with you
Huddled close against the storm
Sharing a love I knew was true

Rain keep falling, wash me clean
Ease my mind and let me sleep
Whisper to me, sight unseen
Won’t you leave my soul to keep

As my skin recalls your touch
My mind can see you sleeping there
I move against your warm skin
And breathe the aroma of your hair

I know sometimes I have my doubts
That my love can stay so true
Here’s my pledge, to calm your ghost
I’ll never forget loving you

Rain keep falling, wash me clean
Ease my mind and let me sleep
Whisper to me, sight unseen
Won’t you leave my soul to keep

So the rain sends me to sleep
Whispering I’ll be all right
I hold your love close to me
I give in to the rainy night

Rain keep falling, wash me clean
Ease my mind and let me sleep
Whisper to me, sight unseen
Won’t you leave my soul to keep
