The Rain Reminds Me of You
 
The rain reminds me of you
Every droplet signifies the cleansing feeling you brought,
The dewey aftertaste that lingers on the branches of trees
Aromatic fragrance after pouring down putting an end to a dry spell.
The rain reminds me of you
Not because you only gifted me with grief but of shedding a new light,
For the rain also symbolizes a fresh frontier, a new beginning
The promise of growth after sprinkling the Earth with Hope.
The rain reminds me of you
When I am at the pinnacle of my love for you,
King Sun had to hide behind your shadow and parted the clouds
To give way to your reign, to showcase your enigmatic prowess
Leaving me in deep revelry, embracing the moment.
You keep on flooding the ground like the time when your charm engulfed my heart
You are like the cleansing rain showers
That gives life to fragile valleys and lonesome rivers
The antidote to a thriving stiff mountain range
Bringing back lush greeneries to a dull sanctuary
The rain reminds me of you
For our moments were captured in every drop .
