Y is for Yesterday


Moments slip away as seconds rush past
I want to find a way to make them last,
I make my Yesterday books to help keep track
I look at my books and the memories rush back,
By taking photos and putting them in a book
I can recapture Yesterday every time I look.

  1. So true ... photos are all we have from Yesterday at a certain point in our lives. So, we should take lots of them ... and that's a good reminder.

    Lovely poem.

  2. Beautifully captured in a poem. Photos are so much fun - captured moments that are remembered forever. I love the quote by Khalil Gibran - he's one of my favourite poets.

    1. Thanks, Talya. Well, mine aren't all organized. I still have thousands on my hard drive that I haven't done anything with. Which reminds me. Must do a backup today.

      I do like doing photo books for birthdays and Christmas. They make good gifts and some day my sons will thank me when they're old and grey looking back. Well, that's the hope anyhow. :)P

    1. Me, too. It's great we can take so many with our digital cameras but at the same time, it's a curse.

  5. Nice sentiment. Now, I'm thinking of the song, "Yesterday."
