Take me back to yesterday, or even the days before
to sunshine and to happiness and maybe something more
Today is not my day you know, today is dark and gray
and even if you smile at me, I won't come out to play

Take me back to yesterday, when I was a little child
I could roam the pastures then, full of flowers wild
Today is not my day you know, for pastures are no more
large buildings placed on land you see, wich was green before

Take me back to yesterday, when loved ones weren't dead
when I could hear them talking real, not only in my head
Today is not my day you know, my head is full of voices
constant ordering me around, I have to make some choices

Take me back to yesterday and I'll just skip tomorrow
and maybe I forget about the gray and dark and sorrow
Today is not my day you know, but you can change that fast
if you'll take me back to yesterday, I'm sure I'll make it last



Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

I know, I know, I had it here before and Marge was angry that I had it removed, so to please her, here it is again.

Sometimes it seems like all my friends are and family are leaving, and going somewhere without me. Yesterday can be very attractive.

Take me back to yesterday and I'll just skip tomorrow

Haven't we all had days like this...
I especially liked your closing line.

Well done Titia~

I'm so glad that you did bring this back for I have not had the pleasure of reading it until now.  You have such a lyrical quality to your words.  The flow is natural and the rhyming superb.  Theme is constant and continuously revealing in thought and mood.  A most appealing and somewhat sad perspective.  Very nice.

Thanks for all your lovely answers dear friends. Sometimes yesterdays should be kept, but sometimes they'd better be gone fast.

Great style: clear and unambiguously wishful thinking, but expressed in such a lyrical manner and with apt images. The tone is unashamedly nostalgic, but there is a sense of reality created because the tone is also quite calm. I am so glad that you re-posted because I enjoyed the read and related to its theme. I'm off to vote!

I enjoyed this immensely the first time I read it, and equally so today.

I remember Marge's challenge well, Titia... and you met it so very well. *S* This is beautiful and poignant... and one to be read again and again. *S* It's got my vote! *S*
