All Our Yesterdays

Their yesterdays

Began when they were small

Growing up like

Two peas in a pod

School days hand in hand

Summers with buckets and shovels

In the sand

They fell in love

And the years were bliss

Reminding each other

Of their love with each kiss

Somewhere along the way

As sometimes things happen

Their starry notions

Got lost along the way

It was odd how they

Just drifted apart

Years down the line

She stumbled upon

The old pictures

Now tucked away in the attic

All dusty and worn

There they were smiling

From childhood through their teens

And for a long time she gazed

At the last picture

Then one arms around one another

But no stars in their eyes

And no smiles

Once again she had to wonder

What had happened

To the love they once shared?

She wondered where he’d gone

And where he was today

No other special love

Had come her way

And now her heart

Began to ache

Miles away he was gazing

At the stars in the sky

Seeing her face

And remembering their love

What was it that had changed?

Can it be that best friends

Are the poorest lovers?

Or did they miss something

Along the way

Perhaps they could try once more

The best of thoughts

Come at the best of times

But often they come

And just as quickly fade away

At the moment that she chose

To retrace her steps

To the place they loved the most

He was already on his way

To the little hotel by the sea

There they met early in the morning

As the sun was just beginning

To glitter on the water

The shadows had all rolled away

And the sea wind was blowing through her hair

They stopped and they gazed at one another

The years seemed to roll away

Time stood still

Their hearts racing

They came together

Realizing how foolish they’d been

To think that their dreams

Were no longer the same

To think the love had simply rolled away

But now there was the promise of a new tomorrow

A promise that love

Would be here to stay

And as they came together

In a kiss full of passion

The waves crashed against the shore

And gulls cried from above

Their hearts were together once again

With promises of a lifetime and more

Rasma, this is so touching. I love that they had the same thoughts at the same time and came together once again. Yes, they are destined to be together.
