London: Yoko Ono recalled the tender relationship she shared with husband John Lennon as she visited his childhood home and said she still felt his spirit with her 30 years after his death.

"He was a very sweet and gentle person at home. He would make an effort and he would say, ``Love is something you have to water every day``. I don`t know how he knew this - but I was lucky to have someone like that with me," the Sun quoted Yoko as saying.

She also visited the star`s former school ‘Dovedale’ and said she felt "very emotional" because her husband had spoken of it many times as the place "where he started.”

The singer and peace activist is based in New York and wore a trilby hat and trademark tinted glasses to visit Lennon``s family house in Liverpool.

“It did not feel like three decades since Lennon`s death. It feels like only yesterday he was here with me,” she added.
