Remember Me to Linda-Marie

She was the first here to welcome me, Our beloved sweetheart, Linda-Marie With praise she offered effervescently She encouraged my entre into poetry She was open and caring with purity of heart Her sincerity was evident right from the start Too soon, from us, she would depart Our mistress of poetry, known as “Sweetheart” Her passion and emotions were worn on her sleeve A few selfish egotists forced her to leave But her love for the rest of us made it a short reprieve She came back where she belonged and we were relieved Her health was fading but her courage held strong She continued her encouragement for me all along For the Good Lord to take just seems to be wrong I will always remember her – My Sweetheart, My Song
