In memory of a lost loved one

Song In the Rain


The song that I remember best... Is one that brings me tears
...And leads me gently by the hand...To all the yesteryears
...The melancholy melody...That mingles in the rain...
And wistfully reminds me with...Its sad and sweet refraim...
Of days that brought me happiness...And nights of silent bliss
...When all my days of beauty bright...Were blended with
a kiss...The music lingers in the air...And in my broken
heart...But there is only emptiness ...Where lovers had to
part...And though each flower in the spring...May offer me
a friend...I know the sun must slip away...And every song
must end.
