    Remembering the times
    Long ago

    And remembering when I
    Used to know the things I used to know

    Remembering when I kept it simple
    Remembering when I kept the truth in my heart

    And let it be bold
    From day to day
    Knowing everyday was going to be different
    And not trying to hold on to the past
    Because nothing stays the same

    Missing you
    Like I do now

    I'm rembembering now
    How
    I sang the song "Yesterday" by Shanice

    The first time I left
    And now rehearsing it in the back of my mind

    Crying
    And hear my self saying
    I finally found the strength to say goodbye

    Looking for that good time lover
    Maybe it wasn't meant for us

    Not trying to get fancy
    Not trying to be someone I'm not

    Not anymore I guess
    Humbling myself
    So that I don't fall again

    Movin on
    And there's nothing wrong

    With me going m going my own seperate way

    Now that I know
    What I'm feeling
    And how I need to feel everyday

    Don't know how I'll go on
    I'll find a way

    Just leaving the past
    Where it lay

    In yesterday

    Looking for to tommorrow
    No regrets
    Just memories that I've kept

    I want to be cared for again
    I want to be loved again
    I want so badly to desire
    And it's something so special and priceless
    For me to feel this way

    Don't want to be taken for granted
    Don't want to be ashamed
    Don't want to take anything for granted
    I want to trust to again
    I want to be faithful
    I want someone to be faithful to
    I want someone to share my ideas and dreams
    With
    I want someone to be faithful to me too.

    I don't want to wonder
    Where,when,how,and whom
    Guessing and wondering if I'll ever be the same

    I have a lot of joy
    I just need some comfort
    Moving forward
    I'm glad
    Knowing that YOU
    Whoever YOU ARE

    You're not too far away
    I know I'll find you Very Soon.
    Very Soon
    Baby, I'll love so much
    Forever and a day
    As long as God allows
    Us to fulfill His purpose
    I will be here for you in every way

    Now, it's because of Him who cares for me
    That I'm

    Hmph! "Back to the basics." If only so many more of us would learn that lesson!

    This poem was so palpable. I really felt your sincerity in it.

    Reflection and some regret but learning from mistakes and moving on with a resolve to do better next time.

    Aint that what it's all about anyway?
