Only Yesterday

It was only yesterday
that I first was born
and I saw for myself
all the wonders of life.

It was only yesterday
that I sat on a bus
and I waved as I watched
all I knew pass me by.

It was only yesterday
that I made a new friend
and I laughed in a way
that was foreign and known.

It was only yesterday
that I fell hard in love
and I felt for myself
what it meant to be loved.

It was only yesterday
that I broke into tears
and I knew for myself
what it meant to be lost.

It was only yesterday
that I longed for the past
and I woke from my sleep
holding hands that weren’t there.

It was only yesterday
that I learned who I was
and I did for myself
what my fate had in store.

It was only yesterday
that I first wrote a book
and I heard for myself
voices calling me home.

It was only yesterday
that I looked in the glass
and I saw for myself
a true friend looking back.
