… I reflect the feelings of yesterday.
I was young and had no dismay.
School and other things were in my mind;
Not the sadness that today I find.
My heart now is filled with sorrow,
Thinking what future brings me tomorrow!
… Yesterday’s thoughts make me feel-
A sadness that is hard to deal.
I think of the one who possessed my heart!
Our destiny ruled us to be apart!
… I can’t forget that handsome face,
Nor how he took his life for my disgrace.
I said my farewell with desperate rave,
Since I wasn’t allowed to say it at his grave!
… That night moon had a wan light.
My face reflected a dark shadow of fright.
I stood in deadly silence to hear-
An emphasizing word about my dear!
But no one knew, no one did care-
That we had promised each other to pair,
That we did not want to part;
Such was our love, so certain in heart!
… Now I think of those limited days;
How sweetly they burned me with blaze.
Hard days have come, hard days have gone!
And I always for those days long!
He is gone and all I have his memories.
I am painfully alive, he is deadly at ease!! …
