After the Rain

The rain takes me back
to the time
when you brought warmth
to my bed
happy thoughts
to my head
a smile to my face

The rain makes me remember
the nights when
it was just you and me
alone
in the dark
laughing, talking, and
touching each other’s hearts

The rain reminds me
of how safe I felt
in your arms
your fingertips were as soft
as raindrops
as they lightly caressed my body

I get lonely
for you…

After it rains.
