Yesterday - Poem by Michael P. McParland
Yesterday I had things to do
and wanted to be here a ton for you.
Then the exhaustion of many days
and sickness came and tripped
me up in many ways laying me out
that even now I'm mostly flat.
Yesterday I had a doctors appointment
to go to in the afternoon.
I fell asleep after so very long awake
and when I got up to go I couldn't walk,
my body in whole had given out and my
mind was confused on top of that.
So a few hours sleep I hoped would cure me,
spliting my head open a migraine from hell
was my fate then and I could have screamed.
I can't eat either canker sores fill my mouth
all around nothing I can do about them.
So yesterday now into today I've felt
awful and am only just getting to an allright place.
I'm sorry love I could not tell you in some sort of way.
I had come apart and could only manage my goodnight poem.
I am going to work hard to do as much as I can
for you today because you are my only one and everything.
I love you so much KP you were what helped
get me through with the love you send to me.
