Remembering Yesterday


I can't remember


but I know it happened


the computer confirms

my suspicion

the date changes automatically

and it's never been wrong before


I am not sure what I did yesterday

but now it's today

and today is what

I look forward to


it would be great if

I could recall yesterday

but I will just let it go


I'll write myself a note

to remember today

and stick it on the refrigerator


I am just happy

that I woke up this morning


I do remember that.

This is why us oldies must keep what we penned and re-read it.

"Oh! this is good.... I wish I could write poetry like this"

Also it is good to sign each piece we write in case we Do get to this point... it's a great surprise when we reach the end.

Aha - a nod to the past: in the short term.
"Yesterday, my memory seemed so sure to stay
Now It seems somehow to have slipped away
Cos I can't remember yesterday..." (apologies to Sir P.) 😐
