The Streets Of Yesterday (poem)

Updated on December 9, 2012

That night she walked the streets of yesterday

The memories and dreams of long ago

The laughter of the friends she used to know

It seems that time has taken them away


And there was him the one whom she loved so

The one who taught her heart to dance astray

The reason for the music of her day

Another teardrop in life’s precious flow


This lady lived a life of dreams’ delight

And in sheer beauty all her past is drawn


Now Joy and pain are arms which hold her tight

What hope unknown awaits another dawn


Her family for breakfast she’d invite

When morning came they found the lady gone

      Shauna L Bowling 5 years ago from Central Florida no one had breakfast? Seriously, Martin, as always this is beautiful and sad at the same time. Sometimes you just have to make decisions that don't please anyone but yourself.

      This one is so sad--tragically romantic. Such a contrast to the dog limerick.
