Take me back to Yesterday... (poem)

Take me back to yesterday
when dreams were born of a fanciful heart
when impossible held no demanding voice
and imagination bore no scars
when day danced a merry tune
and night glittered with reachable stars;
Please, take me back to yesterday
to where hope and innocence are…

Take me back to yesterday
where my soul knows it belongs
to a time when we danced and sang
to some old-fashioned song
where we laughed and played and dreamed of
all that was yet to come;
Please, take me back to yesterday
when our faith was young and strong…

I sit and stare out over my thoughts
as the tide of life sways to and fro
as memories old and fading
set sail to places born of long ago
and I wonder with an aching heart
where did our yesterdays go
but then, again, I am oh so grateful
for the times that we have known…

I guess I will rise from this moment
and enter tomorrow if it is there
and if I do I will take with me
the love we will always share
and though I may not feel your hand
and this grief is a little more than I can presently bear
I will hold on to every yesterday
until heaven takes me there…

Take me back to Yesterday... (poem)
