Yesterday - Poem by Connie Ducksworth
Baby, I remember when we were both together.
You and I being separated, about 100 feet apart.
Blaming myself, for saying words that did break your heart.
We loved each other so very much, but could not make amends.
The happy face that we displayed was only make pretend.
So many hateful words came that day, that tore us both in two,
But once we slept, bad memories faded, our love did start anew.
You for me, and me for you, is what we've always said,
Our love to survive through the tides, even until death.
They placed us in the car that day, taking us both away,
Never did we know, how long we would have to stay.
Our love for each other being tested, as each new day passed
And during this separation, we asked each other, can our love last?
No matter how long it takes, can we stand through the tests of time,
Or would we end up separating, further on down the line?
I can say we survived, through the hardest part,
And greater is my love for him, it's deeper in my heart.
I know one day soon, he will come home, to be with me again,
But this time I can tell you, there won't be any pretend,
Because separation brought us closer, truly opening our eyes,
Never again taking things for granted, what God has placed in our lives.
We cherish every day as if it were our last,
Letting go of all the hurts that kept us in our past.
Now only looking forward of what each new day may bring,
Tears of joy that will bring us, a beautiful song to sing!
