Today I thought of yesterday
of love and lives and loss,
of times long past and friends since passed on.
Today I thought of yesteryear
of family’s unspoken words,
and of words that should have forever remained tattooed to loose tongues.
Today, when I reminisce on the yesterdays and yesteryears,
I think of the moments with smiles longs past but never forgotten
and tears long shed but still sitting in a collection bucket in my heart.
Smiles that still reach through the fickle window of time and replicate themselves on my lips today.
Tears that spill from that bucket into my soul,
dampening my eyes with beloved or tortured yesterdays.
Today, I think of tomorrow and wonder what it will bring through the love and lives of lost yesterdays.
Through the thoughts unspoken
and the words that unwelcomely spewed from faded tattooed tongues.
Through the smiles
and through the tears.
Then I realize that everyone of those lost yesterdays
led me to who I am today.
And I smile.
For when tomorrow comes,
when the stars close their tired eyes
and the sun greets the morning with its amber smile,
I will have yet another yesterday
to add to the memory chest in my mind.
And my heart will be grateful that my today will be
just another glimpse of who I am tomorrow,
until it becomes yet another yesterday.
