How simple seem days that are gone!
Like pages once turned they are past!
No longer to leave us again
Their being neer meaning to last.

In telling the truth well we know
As soon as a moment is done
It was in fact only to go
And will not return once its gone.

No magic will eer bring it back
No song to be sung will it call
Tho substance and presence it lack
Define somehow that which is all.

Would that it color not this time!
Could scape we its persistent wail!
Despite its departure its crime:
Yet cover our dreams with its veil.

Excellent subject, to some extent we live in yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Metre perfect, resonating a voice inside you - even more perfect - like that  you telling you, you know what's gone - and not let'm go again. ~Dean

Whether looking back on the past with fondness or regret, memories are what sustains us and they help to mold the people we become. Great writing David.    Henry

Some poets have a knack for garnering good comments, which is a dead give-away for either talent or sycophancy ( in this case, it's absolutely the former).  Their work may or may not be published in prestigious forums, but for right now, right here... it resonates.  Keep resonating, you got my ear.  n

We get to spend but one life on this earth.  We need to spend it well, because you are right... we will never get it back.  I feel pity for those who write sorrowful poems.  They are focusing on the wrong things.  They need to focus on what blessings we have, not the sorrows.  Spend your time well my friend.  We can't live on credit.

"Yesterday's a cancelled check, tomorrow's a promisory note, today is all the money we have, so let's spend it wisely"--Art Rust Jr. Well done, Fireman.

So very beautiful. All I can think about are promises I've made to myself that yesterdays are in the past and things will change. Thank you for the write.c

Beautifully written -- lovely rhyme scheme and metre.  The past for me is something I actually would rather forget but sometimes a peek is enough to look forward to the future.  Lovely write
