Trail Of Yesterday (poem)

Updated on January 31, 2015

We met upon a trail of yesterday

Which once was graced with flowers of all kind

And cares of spring were always on my mind

Where once was me created my own way


We talked about a path so well defined

Of castles built for future’s children’s play

Of teacher’s quilt to warm dreams as they stray

Where thoughts of me were never hard to find


But here we were upon the way of now

Ahead laid darkness of the said unknown

My way to wonder fatigue would destroy


The call of rest bore heavy on my brow

Was for this rest all pasts I walked were grown

And as I closed my eyes I heard enjoy
