Yesterday's Years

 

 

YESTERDAY'S YEARS

 

Yesterday's Years

 

Today, I ventured to take a stroll

Down the road of yesteryear

To relieve some memories in time

And see the folks I once held dear.

 

Back into the folds of my hometown

That I left so long ago

Back to a treasured place in my heart

And the life I used to know.

 

Oh, but the years have left their mark

On the pieces of memory lane

The man next door is bent and old

And is limping with his cane.

 

My home that once stood up so proud

Is blistered, cracked and gray

Why, oh why, must time play tricks

With the things of yesterday.

 

I pull some weeds and I place a rose

As I kneel by Dad's tombstone

Longing to see the familiar streets

Of the town I once called home.

 

Realizing I can never go back

Through the gardens of laughter and tears

The new seeds I've sown in the course of my life

Have mellowed out yesterday's years.
