Whisper From Yesterday (poem)

Updated on August 25, 2013

A whisper returns from yesterdays passed

A song to my heart was breath which it cast

Lifetime of wonder its chorus amassed

And come back to me was all that it asked


To moments my thoughts were hard to maintain

Its secrets brought Joy with every refrain

As on I was guided with each new soft strain

And nothing was left for need to explain


Bright stars full of hope filled memories passed

As smiles of fulfillment met each refrain

And warm welcome hand helped lighten the strain

As closer I’m drawn to what the dawn asked


It’s all just a dream the world would maintain

So empty and cold was doubt that it cast

It hollowed the treasure there had amassed

With passion it made but couldn’t explain


Returning again to all which was asked

My soul felt the rush of all I’d amassed

And as my eyes toward lover were cast

A whisper returned from yesterdays passed
