Traveling thoughts of yesterdays
gone by, seemingly unreal
except for there memories stowed
away in my souls safe.
The skis seemed bluer and the sun
not so harsh in times past.
Innocence seemed to permeate the
scenery portraying calmness.
In the here and now I find daily routines
hard to fallow, giving
me a sense of turmoil and lack of any
control seems to evade me.
Stifling the air about my life it seems,
with relief hard to find,
at any given moment, and I wonder
if things will change.
The process of growing older was thought
to have been one desired,
knowing time would bring joy to the
things accomplished in life.
Lessons well learned found grounding
giving a foundation of sorts,
but the world is changing so fast its
hard to keep up.
My life has been blessed and for that
I am thankful, and the future
brings many more blessings hoped for,
but the yesterdays were simpler.
I will bring my yesterdays with me
where ever I may go, and
hope and pray that my tomorrow’s
will be as fruitful.
