Yesterday’s News

January 6, 2013

The quiet contemplation
Of what once was
Talking and sharing,
Laughter, sometimes tears,
Love and friendship always
Slowly stills
Distance growing
Day by day
Soon to be replaced by silence
Gnaws upon my soul
With a weary heart
And broken spirit
I purge myself of feeling
Place a wall around my being
Knowing what once was
Is now yesterday’s news
