"Rita, Still Your Presence Lingers…"
Sometimes when I'm alone and lost in thought
And all the world's seem far away,
You come to me as if in a dream,
Gently taking my hand and filling my heart
With the warmth of your presence…..
And I smile, knowing that
Though we cannot be together for now
We're always close in thought.
Missing you now
Loving you Always!!
