Memories in the Rain

I remember black skies

Chaotic, rumbling clouds


Smothering the light of the sun



But barely visible through the sheets




Of falling rain

I remember how we ran

Along that stormy street


Illuminated by headlights



Soaked to the skin




But grinning from ear to ear

I remember holding Your hand

Feeling safe in Your grasp


Two links in an iron chain



As we fought our way through




The wall of cascading tears

I remember looking up

Into Your familiar face


Seeing You smile down at me



Through the drops of distortion




Our eyes shining

I remember making a promise

That for the rest of my life


Whenever it stormed



You'd be on my mind




“That's exactly what I wanted,” You'd laughed

I remember those moments

When we were running for cover


The world spinning around us



Under that vast dome




Of gunmetal gray





I remember your smile

And the love in Your eyes


And whenever I miss You the most



I let go of the world




And remember those moments

I still remember my promise

To which I still hold true


And whenever the Heavens



Let loose and cry




I shed a tear

And remember You
