"The Rain After You" By Samuel Rivera

The sky in dark clouds cried,

I can still hear its tears,

Crash in absolute silence,

Filling pools of sorrow,

In the cold ageless asphalt,

I can still see your eyes,

As they told the story,

Of an eternal goodbye,

Pity my ignorance your soul had,

Had I known it was the end,

I would have tried to stop time,

With your eyes watching me,

As I struggled in vain,

To try to halt the eternal train,

To derail time from its course,

I really would have tried,

But as always,

Time cruelly moved on

After the rain,

The land dried,

The sky cleared,

After the night,

The sun shined the next day,

But after you,

There is nothing,

But the silence,

Of my soul in pain,

As I'm still breathing,

In the memory of your eyes in the rain.
