Thunder and green mint

Thunder and green mint
The forest so lust I can taste 
the tea from here. The rain hits 
the roof as I hear the cats purr, 
I lay on my bed starring out my 
window wishing you were here 
by my side watching it with me. 
The rain it soothes my mind 
relaxes my soul and chills my 
veins I can smell your cologne 
from the room next door, you 
told me "if you sit in the rain 
long enough to hear it speak 
then you're lucky enough to 
always remember me"
I will always remember you and 
from now on every time it rains 
I promise you to sit there as 
long as I hear it speak so I will 
always remember your voice, it 
was mellow like the rain it 
made me melt and it chilled my 
veins.
Now I sit here in the rain trying 
hard to let my thoughts leave 
I'm wet inside the forest of 
green mint I hear it coming the 
wind blows and I hear you, 
"don't tell no body" this is our 
secret we had the power to 
hear it speak and once you left 
the rain washed you away so 
now everyday from January to 
march I will never forget your 
voice unless it never rains.

    I like the metaphor of the rain becoming someone's voice that only you can hear. Very bittersweet emotion and sense of loss. Well done. Congrats on your win :)
