I thought that all my yesterdays would fade away

but I find they grow and fill the empty space when my mind is quiet

the child I was and the woman I became

live together in my mind

yesterdays visit my dreams

in the oddest times they pop into my mind

lingering as ghosts

some whom I love and some I confess I hate

I feel sure they will stay with me dancing on the edge of what is now

making me determined to cherish and keep those who are here

let ghosts sleep and the living love
