Yesterday where did it go?
I don't recall how many hours went by.
I seemed to miss the singing of the birds.
The sun shining bright.
Yesterday is gone.

Can you tell me did it shine?
Was I blinded by some clouds?
Were there rainbows with lots of colors.
I just need to know for yesterday is gone.

Somewhere I seemed to be hidden in the breeze.
Do you remember were the stars twinkling as
brightly last night?
I watched for them, but still I must have missed
them all.
Even the shooting star that I wanted to wish upon.

Today I thought back on yesterday.
I have to say there was a gloominess
in the air, still I have to say
the thing that got me most of all
was that the day went by, without much
memory of it ever being here.

I know it must have came because today is here
and here I sit pondering on the semi-status
of it all.

Before I know it I'll be in yesterday again
so I'll close my pondering for yet another day.
But if you recall where yesterday has gone please say hello for me.

Rosebud1229,
Yesterday, where has it gone? I felt this when I read your poem. Such a lot of meaning about a lost yesterday, which will eventually become today.

THank you SO much Sauni I enjoy writing and I try to open up my heart to make it possible to  relay my feelings sometimes I'm so overwhelmed I'm at a loss for words so I'm so glad you could relate and understand where I'm coming from.

RoseBud~
I think you captured 'yesterday' and
wrote it for us all.
Lovely remembrances of a day gone by too quickly ...
as they all are prone to do.

This is a great title for a poem and it drew me right in. And then the awareness of what was missed and it is gone. A wonderful theme.
Good writing

Oh shoot! Now I have "Yesterday"'s tune running through my head...just what I needed...more Beatles music! I know what it is like to see the kids grown [and gone]... but do look forward, Rosebud, to all of your tomorrows...just don't wish them away!
