It Was Only Yesterday
It was only yesterday, when you were small,
I used to hold you in my arms.
Now you're older and out of school!
Yes, it was only yesterday,
When I clothed you and fed you.
It was a joy watching you play.
I hope yesterday I was a good Mother,
So when yesterday passes and in the future you'll be a good Father.
May yesterday have good memories of how we played and did things together.
