It Happened Like Yesterday

And it happened like yesterday
I smiled the way i never smiled
Remembering my love the only i had
Hey I never smiled like yesterday.

Never let you go and in your lap
I wanna dream in a short nap
In my dreams will be you and me
Wrinkled faces, the fire but happy.

And my last breath and your tears
On my cheeks I wanna feel these
And smile the way I never smiled
Just like it happened yesterday.

Nicely done. Thanks for sharing
I thought the message was clear and poignant, I really like this poem.
Enjoyable. Thank you!
Good message...timely voicing of issues.
Lawrence, A haunting poem, long after you have gone through it. Calling back again and again. Ordinary words, but extraordinary poetry. It just as Rabindranath Tagore wrote: That words have meanings is just the difficulty. That is why the poet has to turn ans twist them in meter and verse, so that the meaning may be held some what in check and the feeling allowed a chance to express itself. Yes, Lawrence, you have achieved a free flow of feelings. Much above the meanings and words. That is what poetry really is. Excellent. Congrats. Keep writing.
