Yesterday

A Poem by Jack...
"

Standing right in front of me

"

Yesterday

 

Cast along a dotted line

of yesterdays and practiced rhyme

These dreams before of what was told

deliveries my heart does hold

 

A poet’s thoughts of times gone by

in empty scenes and tear stained eyes

Where broken hearts have come to play

my words they speak of yesterday

 

                   ~~**~~

            

Yet here I stand on corners plead

as verses plant the morning seed

These shadows lingering behind

now disappear in what I find

 

For beauty in my eyes I see

as love it walks the path to me

And since your love has come my way

I’ve no more need for yesterday

Yes I did :)
I really liked the change in mood and tone in the last stanza. I was all set for a paen to lost loves and dreams and was very pleasantly surprised.
A lovely piece of faith in the ability to have second chances. Well done.

Thank you so much Prachi
That is a great thought, and very true. Sometimes new love is the only thing that will free you from yesterday. The thought was clear but the rhyme seemed a bit forced, with the "corners plead" line, but all in all another beaut.

Well a lot can be said for second place, so no worries. You're welcome.
Delightful feelgood poem thanks Jack. Just in time, catching up a backlog of rr's and many sad ones among them. Your positive message very welcome.
