Remembering Yesterday Once More
The sweet summer grass calls me
and I lay back as it beckons,
looking above at the brilliant blue sky -
as the summer breeze softly blows.
The white clouds up above,
gently sail by
and I’m taken on a journey -
as I see spirits drifting along.
In my imaginative dreams,
I search the skies
and see my friends,
as I once saw them in life.
My heart then aches,
for those who’ve come and gone
and it calls out with every beat -
Where, where are my friends now?
Then I smile sweetly,
as memories gather,
the summer breezes -
whisper their names to me.
I also remember you,
the love so special that we shared
and I know you are loving me still,
somewhere up in the deep blue,
while waiting for me your love will remain true.
I know that they are beside me,
glad that my love for them fills my heart,
with happy sighs -
I keep watching the clouds rolling by.
Seeing the faces and the smiles,
of long gone yesterdays,
remembering the love -
that once warmed my heart.
The smell of freshly mowed grass,
comes drifting to me
and I feel so happy to be,
part of the summer
and part of the love –
remembering yesterday once more.
