Yesterday Was - Poem by Lyn Paul

Yesterday Was

Was No tattoo
A family too
A home of Love
A Love for home

Dollars were thriving
Now thriving on sunshine

Heart is torn
Wisdom now wiser

For a Family Lost
Lost in circumstance

Wrinkles are now wealth
The wealth of life
Now
Telling my story

A story to be proud
For with my smile
Wanting to make others
Just Smile too

Seeing now
Life is edge
We have to be Satisfied
But
We have to want more

Knowing
Yesterday Was
And
Still is

    are you children's names Rose and Daisy? Is that your freckled shoulder or your freckled.....hip? ? ? !

    if the latter, i say Hip hip hurray! ! !

    Life is edge..i don't understand this part. i've heard of people living on the edge. i am always on the edge of sanity, OR is it the edge of insanity? what, pray tell, is the difference anyway? ? (cont.)

    Wrinkles are now wealth
    The wealth of life

    Aging is not a total negative; with age we accumulate what many young people crave for...Not afraid of aging when i think of that... :) Perdita
