About the Poem
Just a poem reflecting on days gone by and missing those important people in our lives who are no longer with us.
Reflections of Yesterday
|As the sun is slowly setting
And the evening shadows grow
I think back on days gone by
To a place I'd like to go.
Back to a place in my childhood
When days were so carefree
Back to the days when my Mama's lap
Was my favorite place to be.
Those days of slides and swing sets
Of playing out in the yard
Those days when we were growing up
And nothing seemed too hard.
All too soon we turn around
And find ourselves all grown
With adult responsibilities
And children of our own.
The memories of yesterday
Come quickly to mind
When as an adult I'm searching
For answers I cannot find.
We struggle through our losses
Gain strength from each hurdle crossed
And learn that we are not truly alone
Especially when we feel most lost.
Now the shadows have faded to darkness
The days warmth is now growing cold
I look up to the stars in heaven
And wonder what tomorrow will hold.
The stars are shining down brightly
Almost as if to say
Sleep well my dear and don't be afraid
For tomorrow's a brand new day.
