Just One More Time!

Oh! How I yearn for yesterday just one more time,
sunshiny days of youthful laughter and star bright
nights that seemed sublime.
Family and friends, places in time.

How quickly it all passed…
by tens it marched by,
 like sifting sands through
the hour glass it has left me
shivering and cold…

For you see…
now I'm nearing eighty
and felling so very old.

Memories fade as time rushes on…
that's life, here today and tomorrow gone!

Oh! How I yearn for yesterday if only to
savor life's sweet wine…
just one more time!
