You Can'T Go Back To Yesterday - Poem by jewel Alberter

I hear the call of the mountains,
Oh how I'd love to be,
Back home again in the hills where I was young.
I'd like to see my sister's playing,
hear the song's we sung,
But you can't go back to yesterday,
No, you can't go back to yesterday.

Childhood memories we cherish,
Of the days so long ago,
Oh tell me where the time has slipped away.
I'd like to hear my Mother call me,
Help Daddy like I used to do,
But you can't go back to yesterday,
No you can't go back to yesterday.

The morning glories we planted,
Still bloom along the wall.
The old oak tree that we climbed now stands forelorn.
The old homeplace is gone now,
No children laugh or play,
But you can't go back to yesterday,
No you can't go back to yesterday.

When I hear the mountains call me,
I close my eyes and dream,
and go back to the hills I love so well.
In dreams I see my loved ones,
But awake and they are gone,
cause you can't go back to yesterday,
No you can't go back to yesterday.

(Written in 2009 in Hemet, Ca.)
