Remember Me

In days to come,
Will you remember me
Without bitterness, without pain?

Will Summer rain
Recall my tears to you,
When you were my only comfort?

Fat, grey droplets.
Flow into the river
The river flows into the sea.

Warm as fresh blood,
Rythmic as a heartbeat,
Water falls from a charcoal sky.

You have your joy
But, in Summers yet to come,
Look to the west when rain falls
And remember me.
