Whispers From Yesteryear - Poem by Sean Godley

The shape of life and love that lived in yesteryear,
Those days that glowed with tragedy undone,
Sing nothing now but whispers in my ear.
Tomorrow’s yesterday does not draw near
To the wild young nights in which were spun
The shape of life and love that lived in yesteryear.
Our laugh, our chant, our song, our joke and our cheer;
These glory-sounds, we sang them to the sun,
Sing nothing now but whispers in my ear.
We shiver now, but in those days, we had no fear,
So I try to smile upon, and not to shun,
The shape of life and love that lived in yesteryear.
My long-lost friends, once so close, I held so near,
Their loyal cries and our shouts of blood as one,
Sing nothing now but whispers in my ear.
Still age is a constant path, and I walk on from here,
But my hope is dulled for future fealties won.
The shape of life and love that lived in yesteryear,
The shape and love of life in yesteryear,
Sing nothing now but whispers in my ear.
