     Dreams of Yesterday
My dreams of yesterday have all faded away
like the flickering flame of a candle in the wind.
Oh! How I wish I  could do it all  just once again!
Yesterday, yesterday…when I was young
and thought those days would never end!
Life was sweet, as life can be, like honey
from the honey bee.
Now yesterday has come and gone and left
me to wander on in a world for me, that has
long gone wrong.
The sands of time has taken its told,
for I have grown old and as you can see…
yesterday is no longer mine to hold.
Life has given me its best, so It’s too
late for tears or regrets!
Yesterday has come and
 gone and as you well know,
 tomorrow is promised to no
