Dream a Little Dream.

Once more I was sitting eating my dinner,

Looking across the table at the empty chair

Where my lover used to sit and look at me,

Where we looked at each other.

The profound love we had for each other

That was seen through each other’s eyes,

So strong and never ever leaving us.

Never leaving me now she has parted this life,

Leaving me sitting at the table alone,

Thinking of her and that so deep love we had.

Then that song came on and took me to her,

As we dreamed a little dream together.

            Andy, love transcends the physical and I am sure she feels your love on that 'other side'. You will never be apart!
