Yesterday - Poem by Michael Peterson

Yesterday, oh dear yesterday
Today we reflect on you
Yesterday, I ran around
Like the kid, I once was
Yesterday, I learned to ride
Biking was such a wheelie
Yesterday, I became a man
Growing up too fast
Yesterday,45s spun
Today, IPods run
Yesterday, the radio played in the air
TV rules the chair
Yesterday, I dreamt of being young
Aging and memories fading
Yesterday, I wrote about you
Reflections of life gone by
Yesterday, today, almost gone
Tomorrow will always come
Yesterday, Dreams of you
Wishing we could live through you all over again
Yesterday, You may be gone
But we live for you tomorrow
Yesterday, I love to have you back today

    Great nostalgic poem, yesterday is so dear to us in memories and the simple life we lived when younger. Now it can only be looked back upon with wishes and desires to relive it once again. Thank you for the wonderful memories of yesterday. This is a wonderful poem and I enjoyed it immensely. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
