That Reminds Me

I trace the raindrop falling
Down the cold wet window pane
It reminds me of my tears
I shed just yesterday
I watch the grey clouds moving
Across the autumn sky
They remind me of the sadness
I carry day to day
The minutes tick away the night
With a rhythmic melody
They remind me nothing lasts forever
I’m not the girl I used to be
