Today was cold and windy,
The sun forgot to shine,
The rain fell from a pewter sky ~
An ordinary day was mine.

Suddenly I thought of you
And the friendship that we share,
Your cheerful winning ways ~
Your tenderness and care.

I wondered what you were doing
And how things were for you,
You walked across my memory
As you so often do.

I recalled your laughter and kindness
Your cheery special ways,
Just the very thought of you
Brings joy to all my days.
