The Girl From Yesterday

Kevin Michael Bloor

Thanks to a loving heart that beat for me,
I stand unfettered now, by love set free.
The girl I owe this debt to I can’t pay,
for she belongs to yonder yesterday.

From deep inside my long-forgotten past,
where paths were paved with thorns and pain was vast,
she shed her love, like leaves, in springtime’s youth,
a stream that flowed with kindness, love and truth.

But she, with holy healing in her wing,
was cursed to haunt my past, where she did sing
sweet songs that stilled the siren’s savage strain,
but died, like spring, yet could not live again.

This loving heart no longer beats for me,
as I stand tall, unfettered now and free.
But in my heart she’ll never fade away:
the one I've deemed the girl from yesterday.
