Rita is my ex wife and now a good friend.   I wrote the following poem for her.  I honestly feel my attitude and my words of the poem come to me because of my understanding of the other world, in which I have visited.


You were with me for awhile,

And what a joyful time it was,

Blissful moments of hand in hand, arm in arm,

Caring through sickness and health,

Just as we had pledged,

Of time, which our togetherness was measured,

And of smiles and laughter which soon faded,

Soon to be together never again,

We each left in a different way,

But you know, if this did not happen,

We would not be the friends we are today.
