More Than Yesterday

She says she feels the days upon her
The many years she’d seen fly
I tell her not to ever worry
There is no reason for her to cry

The worry she has thrust upon her
So much weight for her to take
She’s not alone; I’ll be there with her
Through every night and morning’s wake

Wanna take her
Wanna hold her
And let her know
Despite we’re older
I love her… more than yesterday
I’ll protect her
I’ll console her
And let her know
Just as I’ve told her
I love her… more than yesterday

There is no curse that we can’t conquer
No sickness, together, we can’t cure
I tell her this, because I love her
And we’ll get past, of this I’m sure

She smiles and behind I still see tears
The worry she buries deep inside
Trying not to show just how she feels
But concern is one thing she just can’t hide

Wanna take her
Wanna hold her
And let her know
Despite we’re older
I love her… more than yesterday
I’ll protect her
I’ll console her
And let her know
Just as I’ve told her
I love her… more than yesterday

Tomorrow, I tell her, is ours forever
A love letter of life, eternally writing
That hope and thoughts will keep us going
Down our golden roads, through life exciting

Wanna take her
Wanna hold her
And let her know
Despite we’re older
I love her… more than yesterday
I’ll protect her
I’ll console her
And let her know
Just as I’ve told her
I love her… more than yesterday

More Than Yesterday

Artist's Description

My wife was just diagnosed yesterday with skin cancer. While many people get this and it can typically be removed, she always holds so much worry. These are lyrics I wrote this morning that I will set to music for her and hopefully she’ll feel better
