My breath`s a little shorter now,
My strength is not so strong,
My step is slow, and faltering,
It`s hard to get along.
My body`s less the straighter now,
My ears will miss your word,
My speech to those around me,
Sometimes will not be heard.
My eyes are dulled of vision now,
My bones all ache with pain,
My skeleton is used away,
But some things still remain.
My memory is young, and bright,
Still vibrant in it`s way,
With brief reminds of history,
That happened, `yesterday`.
For `yesterday`, I fell in love,
And `yesterday`, we kissed,
And `yesterday`, you went away,
Though still today you`re missed.
But `yesterday`, was `years ago`,
That`s what other people say,
But not to me, for in my heart,
Yesterday, was `yesterday`.
