Drops of April rain


This memory too shall pass

like drops of April rain

The one that agonizes my world

and on my soul it reigns

leaf-3293877_1920

 

So then what will it be?

If not a reminiscence

Will it be a passing thought

Or just that shallow fragrance?

 

This story too shall remain untold

And scattered in pieces of a glass

Or will it be remembered in aches,

In the wholes or in the parts?

So then what will become of it?

If it didn’t become worth a tale

Will it just be that tiny feather

That’s brushed away by the gale?

 

This longing too shall transform

Into a smile unfeigned

Or be a memory that will pass

Like drops of April rain.
