Bid Time Return

Where has Yesterday gone?

it was here

just the other day,

all safe,secure,

understandable,reliable;

Where is it now?

where have they put it?

what happened to all yesterday’s certainties?

that familiar quotidian theatre

of the High Street,the Factory and the Pit?

where are those daily familiar faces

we all know about?

whom we all understand,

and who understand one another?

whoever took yesterday away

did so without so much

as a by-your-leave,

didn’t even bother to leave a note,

a short one along the lines of,

” just borrowing your yesterday,
bringing it back tomorrow.”

    I loved this Louis, and singing”Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away”-The Beatles. Your writing brings out many emotions.
