Because The Rain - Poem by Donnie Wolff

I hear the rain,

and your voice sound.

I feel the thunder,

And your heart pound.

With a tear I pray,

in a sky still blue.

Because the rain,

reminds me of you.

    Thank you, seems to be the most popular on here and elsewhere. Everything written is true. My life.. I wrote this at 6 in the morning in a thunderstorm on her birthday as we had broken up the day before.
    Though that remained that way, the poetry the moment now lives beyond all of us.

    Thank you very much, it means a lot coming from someone as established as yourself. I wrote it after a break up at roughly 6am, don't think I slept that night... Inevitable break up so it was bitter sweet.
