Remnants of Roxanne
Remnants of you Roxanne
Drape over my memory like a warm blanket
I can still see you there just over my shoulder
Your smiling eyes and toothy grin beaming up at me
I still feel your warmth in the rays of the sun
And I still hear your voice in the winds that blow across this land
This land... your home
Will forever feel the presence of your shadow watching over...
Watching over us all
And though I am sad to be parted from you my friend
I am reassured to know...
That now there'll be someone to watch over me wherever I go
- for Roxie, my faithful wonderful friend
