Now You Are Gone - Poem by Samantha White

Sitting in the rain with my head on your shoulder,
your arm around me spreading warmth through my whole body,
Now that you are gone will you remember me?
Or am I just some memory you will put aside?
Now you are no longer beside me,
Every time I turn around I expect to see your face.
But I know you will never again be there,
you are just some memory I have to try to put aside.
How can I ever forget your gentle gaze?
That made me feel I had nothing to fear.
Now I sit staring at the gray sky,
watching the raindrops falling all around me.
The salt of my tears mixes with the clear fresh water,
and my mood matches the darkness of the sky.
