Back To Yesterday

Sometimes I do a rewind

Recall all things that happened

Try to solve the puzzle when I should enjoy the ride

 

Sometimes I go back to yesterday

Because today you seem so far

Because you confuse me

Because I’m trying to read the signs

 

I do not know what you really feel

Maybe I should just stop and let it all be

Maybe I should just take it all back

And keep it hidden somewhere far

 

But then you pull me back again

And I am at a loss

 

And so I go back to yesterday

Right when I gave my heart to you, willingly

And I’m content

Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday

today has gone away

tomorrow is another day

yesterday has done it’s part

it won’t have a change of heart

fear not what you know not of

you know you’ll make it when push comes to shove

life is not a race

you’re suppose to take time, slow your pace

do what you can for today

relive but don’t dwell on the moments of yesterday

tomorrow is always a day away

no use fretting that’s what I say

keep to your faith for that is what really counts

I’m Thankful For Yesterday

Yesterday is a day that you can never prepare for

It is a day that can never be erased or removed or deleted

One that you can never go back to

except only in memory

Yesterday was not perfect, as all days are not

Things may not have gone well

But, what else is new?

It may have been a wonderful day

Or the most awful one yet

No matter what it might have been

one thing is for certain

You survived that day and you’ll continue on

The task may seem too much

But look back on your yesterday and see

what you have accomplished; you made it this far

Be glad for you are able to recount your yesterday

as it molds your future

Let yesterday be your constant guide

as you move on for today and tomorrow

Looking Forward to Yesterday

when I close my eyes I see your face, it haunts me to this day

why can’t I seem to let you go?

why should I live in dismay?

I didn’t want to see you go but it seems

you didn’t want to stay

you turned your back as you said goodbye

what more could I say?

you’ve let me go when I still love you so

it’s so unbalanced; so painful

and you saying we can still be friends is not being helpful

my lips are cracked and they bleed and I’m hurt

while you are somewhere far away,

and all that’s left of you is a torn up shirt

through gritted teeth and freezing rain

I face this horrible pain

in time I know you’ll be nothing more but

part of my history

tomorrow may still be a mystery….to me

yet I can’t wait to look forward

to yesterday
