tears #2

the sound of a billion raindrops
falling in this thunderstorm tonight
is unsettling,
but does not come close
to the number of tears
that she has cried
in my ears;
they cannot measure
her pain:
I cannot describe it.

it is better now,
but it is the souvenir
that she will never lose:
a scar, reminding.

as the rain, and her tears,
I wish for peace.
