Once Upon a Yesterday


A bridge not far away,
Relic from another day.
A place I used to play,
Once upon a yesterday.

Footprints in the dirt,
On a path from long ago.
Memories whisper in the trees,
From a place I used to know.

Meadows once in bloom,
Scattered by the winds of time.
Laughter lingers in the air,
Echoes of a childish rhyme.

The place where I grew up,
It seems so far away.
But close my eyes and I can see,
Once upon a yesterday.
