Poem: Yesterday I watched your birth. Tears of Happiness.
Yesterday I hoped you would not grow up on me
Yesterday I had devilish thoughts. Too mean to bear
Yesterday I sent you off to school.
Yesterday I promised to love and cherish you.
Yesterday I kept taking off for a lifestyle of the rich and famous.
Yesterday you said I was too mean.
Yesterday you said I acted like I was on something.
Yesterday Slobber and Drool, I let everyone get over on me.
Yesterday you saw I need my medicine just to survive.
Yesterday I was confused.
Yesterday is just that.
Yesterday always brings a tomorrow.
Yesterday is no place to be....
