how much of yesterday is to be forgotten
for our today to be given?
twas yesterday when you joyously told
that today you will be better as you old.
when yesterday was just a reflection
of your life in meditation
a yesterday filled with hope,
that today will be in better scope.
how much of yesterday is to be treasured
for our today to be remembered?
twas yesterday when you playfully said
that today you’ll never be lonely and sad.
when yesterday was a memory
for our today to be lived fully.
a yesterday charged with a story
that today you will never be sorry.
a yesterday lived in today
for tomorrow is far at bay.
we cannot change the past, but we can always live today with memories of the past for a beautiful tomorrow.
