Young as Yesterday

Sitting in the airport in Minneapolis, I was waiting for a flight back home after two weeks here on business. I saw this elderly couple walking along arm in arm struggling to help each other. Seeing there age, it seemed as though they had probably been married for fifty or sixty years, yet, still hanging on, literally, to each other. We should all be so fortunate in our own marriages. Most don’t continue on this way. This is what came to me in thought, if we all could just apply it in our life. Young as Yesterday

Young as Yesterday


Our yesterday began, when I first saw your face;

I’ll never forget that day, when I noticed all your grace.

You were as comely, as elegant, as satin silky lace:

more beautiful than words can say, seeing your face that day.

Although I didn’t know you, I knew, I wanted it to be,

you and I together, spending time, sublime, eternally.

It came to be, that you were mine, and I was only yours,

together, forever, until the end of time.

Many thoughts there are, many words that could be said;

about the joys of our years, from our minds, these times

will remain, have never fled.

There is one thing though, that we all must accept,

we must accept without pretending.

time always has a new beginning, time always has its ending.

It’s what’s in between those times, we hold dear, as joys divine!

As fast as our days begin, they seem to want to end.

but always keep this thought, that you were my dear friend!

Through the years as time passes by, you say your getting older,

you say your looks are fading, you turn your face and sigh!

But ask me why, and I will always say,

to me, you will always be, as young as yesterday!

Our yesterday began, the day I saw your face,

the sight of you, your beauty too, impossible to erase!

To a man who really loves his wife, and a wife who really loves her man,

life will be one happy song, will remember always the best of life

won’t dwell on what might be wrong!

Yes our years might be well along, and most of our days gone by,

just remember, I will always love you, even if our days should pass us by.

But until that day my love, let us go along as lovers do,

holding hands with no dismay!

Just remember my dear, each day,

You will always be, as young as yesterday!
