It Was Only Yesterday

Rating: 4.1

It was only yesterday, when you were small,
I used to hold you in my arms.
Now you're older and out of school!
Yes, it was only yesterday,
When I clothed you and fed you.
It was a joy watching you play.
I hope yesterday I was a good Mother,
So when yesterday passes and in the future you'll be a good Father.
May yesterday have good memories of how we played and did things together.
And the little talks that made things brighter.

Of course yesterday was hard and enduring.

Life is like a day you don't even notice how time moves. A good poem

My son is graduating from high school tomorrow, June 16,2006. I've been thinking exactly the things that this poem describes. Thank you for putting into words what my heart is crying out.
