Yesterday



YESTERDAY is gone, so
make room for TODAY,
the OTHER DAYS were HECTIC
 have now GONE AWAY,
A DAY of COMPLETE MAYHEM
has now GONE ASTRAY,
It was looking PRETTY ROUGH,
 but "WHAT CAN I SAY???"
Just HAPPY to KNOW that
I AM STILL HERE,
YESTERDAY'S TOUGH ISSUES have
 now DISAPPEARED,
LORD PLEASE BLESS MY WEEK,
OH, THIS I DO PRAY,
YESTERDAY IS LONG, GONE,
 GETTING READY FOR
A NEW DAY!!!
