Yesterday Came

Yesterday came
When I saw his face
And along withered joys
It brought his grace

We did not have to bear
Not a shred of pain
Nor regrets
Could make us refrain

Our eyes embraced
Out hearts found their way
As if yesterday
Had never gone away

Tell yesterday
“Come again tomorrow”
For no place is left
In our hearts.. for sorrow

A later edition:
This poem was written in a kind of game on a site for “the poets to be”, the rule of the game is choosing a title, any title and then ask others to write anything that relates to the title. And see who gets the most stars from the critics who could be anyone visiting the site.
Ok now let’s play this game :
I will chose a title from one of my older poems To You , I want you now to write whatever inspiration you get from the title or from the poem and write it down, there will be no judgments here, you are free to write whatever comes to mind, no restrictions what so ever, you only have to stick to the title and it doesn’t have to be a poem, a paragraph will do and you can chose to write it in Arabic or English. Just let it flow.

    To You I’m going to gladly send
    at a rate of 299 792 458 ems per es
    in vacuum, air, on the shore or undersea
    an es-em-es and maybe an em-em-es
    either one of which you’ll comprehend
    and hopefully you’ll laugh a plenty
    at all the mobile jokes that I will send!

    To You…

    You came into my life
    Did each breath feel as sweet?
    Did I smile
    and giggle
    and play
    Like I do with you
    Every morning
    I awake hearing your voice in my ears
    And your song in my heart.

    I love you

    To you…

    Far, In a cold and lonely night,
    In the dark, the moon comforts me.
    Tell… can you see her silver light?
    Stars shining down above high sea.

    From afar I send love letters,
    Empty arms, I sit and wonder-
    Are you wearing your pink sweater-
    to keep warm. Do nights seem colder?

    Stars above you, jealous skies.
    Your sweet words, I so treasure.
    I dream of innocent dark eyes,
    Long walks, memories of pleasure.

    Wait for me under a palm tree.
    Under cotton clouds so patiently.
    By rivers of hope lies destiny,
    Where love will blossom,
    You and me.

    To You…I ask…
    Was it a hard task

    To love and let go
    This…I must know

    Your love that has died
    and the tears that I cried

    To You…I inquire
    Of the burning fire

    That lives within my heart
    Now that we are apart

    To You…I plead
    With all my greed

    A spell I shall now cast
    For you to forget the past

    Of the mistakes that I made
    That caused your love to fade

    To You…I say
    On this very day
    Let us fly away
    And forget about yesterday…

    A ti amor de mi corazón
    aunque eres un poco sobón
    y algunas veces tan putón
    Sal ya de este rincón
    y vete a limpiar el salón

    لك أنا شلت القلب…. و رميته
    بكامل قواي….. تحت رجلك حطيته
    و قلت يا قلبي…. اسمعني.إن داسك….. بكيفه
    و إن شالك من الارض و باسك….. بكيفه
    حبيبتي هذا القلب….. تحت أمرك مشيته
    تحضنينه و إلا تبعدينه…… تراني بالبدايه قطيته

    I don’t know why most poems revolved around love and honey 😛

    Anyways here is my take, and my muse came in Arabic this time!!

    لك…. ناشري

    لك قصيدة
    قد اوصدت نفسها في العلية
    تخشى الطمس
    تخشى اللمس
    تخشى قصمة الرقيب العتية

    لك قصيدة
    جعلت من الغبار غلافا
    يمسح نقطتين
    ويبقي عبرتين
    تحيل من السطور ضفافا
    تستجي الامل
    تفيض بالخجل
    لامة لم تصن حرمة قلم
    لامة خذلت سلطان الكلم
    لامة لا تقرا باسم ربها
    ان تكون كالشيخ الهرم
    يحرم النعمة
    !ليبيح الالم

    Great idea Ruby!
    and Eva i liked your’s, original!now here’s mine:

    To You..
    Do you feel it was like yesterday also?
    Nothing scares me now like the idea of ever losing you
    Promise me you’ll always be by my side?
    You know my weaker side..
    You are my weaker side

    To all
    This has been by far my favorite post, I loved all the contributions made by the poets and the poetesses and I read them may be more than ten times. Talented, creative and had me entertained all weekend. I hated to end it by publishing a new post, thank you all, you really brought joy to my heart like a cool summer breeze.

    أنا قلبي مو طايحن من عيني
    أنا لها طوعت كل شرايني
    يوم القلب ماهزته أحاسيسي
    رميته مثل ما ترمين المهملاتي
    وأضن المعني واضح بكلماتي
    ياحلوها يوم كحلت أوراقي

    Oh ayya, it used to be better 😥

    I contemplated a writing career once and took a detour, but thanks for this post – it was quite refreshing, and took me years back to my teens when I used to scribble 😛
