Those Years of Yesterday                                     

~

Standing in the stillness, the snowflakes falling ‘round;

Peaceful voices softly whisper of the memories to be found.

Friends and families gathering, there’s closeness once again;

So long ago, those times and faces: those memories creeping in.

~

The fleeting years have faded so much of what has been:

Some gather now, like yesterday, as if it was back then.

It seems like not so long ago, a time when we were young:

Growing old was impossible; drifting apart just wasn’t done.

~

Truth removes illusion with the passing of the time;

And things appear as they used to be, but only in our minds.

It will never be the same again; the way it was, the way we were;

The times have changed, life moves on; the past becomes a blur.

~

Standing in the stillness, the snowflakes falling ‘round;

Peaceful voices softly whispering of the memories to be found.

A tear springs from my heart to kiss the newly fallen snow:

I realize that it’s time to let this moment go.

~

I can walk along the back roads of my memories anytime:

And find so many waiting thoughts, these shadows in my mind.

The mist of once upon a time will always have its say;

As friends and families gather in those years of yesterday.

See Beyond

When standing in the middle of a forest and looking up, it is difficult to see beyond the canopy of trees. The sky is there, but only glimpses seen.

When standing in the middle of this life and looking up, it is difficult to see beyond the cares of this world. Eternity is there, but rarely noticed.

There is a distinct difference between temporary and forever. don’t let the trees and cares of this life cause you to lose focus of eternity. See beyond.
