Hello Yesterday

A day at a time

I soak and feel.

A moment shared

what a steal.

I see you there

with a tear in your hand.

I look at you and across

I turn away to pass

yet you hold

you  –  my yesterday.

So I say,

hello yesterday.

Once my tomorrow,

and then my today

but now,

just my yesterday.

Didn’t I tie you too to that pier?

You, but you did break alas,

To reach you,

I need to blend to yesterday.

So I stand affirm

look ahead

for tomorrow that

await too, to melt to yesterday!
