Yesterdays

reflection on still waters reminded of an era now gone
music, laughter, nostalgia and song
days, years, loyal ones and true, all since gone, faded away like the mountain dew,
gazing above at a cloudless sky, memories floated away locked in daydream
partings, yesterdays people vanished as tears became one with the silent mountain stream...

    Very sad and very true. As we go thru life we lose our friends and indeed our health! Thanks mike for another insight into what life throws at us!
