Yesterday


It seems like only moments ago

She was on my knee ~

Or had her head upon my neck

Singing tenderly;

When love had seemed so safe ~ so warm;

No thoughts at all dismayed,

But I remember ~ in regret ~

That was yesterday.



When her face was warm with fever,

No comfort could we find,

Then she crawled upon my lap ~

We sang a long, long time.

I looked to see her fast asleep, but

"Sing more!" is what I heard.

The tender and the humorous ~

She learned every word.



It wonít be long, and sheíll be back;

Playing at my knee;

Tending potted plants and busy

With her young lifeís " busy bee".

Iíll not take for granted

Her presence through the day,

Iíll hold those precious ~ (things to add) ~

To my "Yesterdays".
