Poem: Seems Like Yesterday

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Seems like yesterday is about the old photo albums we look at from time to time. We have friends from our childhood which we no longer see each day. Life often takes us to different directions but we are happy for one another as we yearn for yesterday.

Seems Like Yesterday

Just sitting here watching
as my mind
flips through the dusty pages
of old photo albums stashed away.

Seems like yesterday
we were children
making each day like an amusement park
full of adventure.

As time moved forward
we traveled upon different pathways
guiding us in opposite directions,
the childhood games are over
but our memories are not.

We can smile,
being happy for one another
for the roads
we have chosen,
knowing our friendship
is strong like an old oak tree.

"Bob Seger - Against The Wind ( lyrics)
