Yesterday - Poem by RoseMarie Mitchell
You cannot come with to that place where broken dreams are hidden.
You cannot come with me to that place where memories are forbidden.
I cannot take you to that place where thorns of despair lie
for then, you'll discover the anguish in my cry.
Please do not come with me to yesterday,
for yesterday is past.
Where happiness was fleeting and really did not last.
Return, return, I beg of you to the present
where it's safe and bright.
For in the past there's darkness
like the blackness of the night.
Return, return, from that place of sorrow that you so want to tread
where the heart is filled with sadness, loneliness and dread.
Do not insist to go this way for here there's no bliss
only pain and heartbreak where shame and regret kiss.
I cannot strip my soul so bare for naked I will stand
and then you will behold my secrets right at hand.
All the barriers that I've erected will come tumbling down
and you will see my teardrops falling to the ground.
