Yesterday Seems so Far Away

Yesterday seems so far away,

Like the stars of the night

And the sun of the day.

Memories past evade my grasp,

Like fleeting images no longer alive,

Except in the past…

The clear pond's foggy steam

Shines the young girl's reflection,

Bringing the past from ancient dreams,

Reviving her mind's recollection.

The journey's end has come,

The night has arrived,

The old song has been sung,

And the girl has closed forever her pleading eyes…

Traverses the inner turmoil of lost memories and hidden pain that can result in the loss of self and identity.
