    I knew it would leave
    but I didn't want to face the pain
    the pain I would have to feel
    as I watched it pass away.

    All the joy I felt then
    all the lessons that I learned
    - what a friend is
    - how to love yourself
    and most of all
    - how to be strong.

    Special moments will never be forgotten
    though the time has passed away
    I will thank the Lord for everything I have
    as a result of Yesterday.

    But what lies ahead?
    How can I use these things for good?
    Will I still cry these tears?
    Will I still have this sorrow?
    Will I find a friend as good as you?
    Someone who's a counselor
    a teacher, and a friend
    Someone who is kind and true
    on whom I can depend.

    Where are the answers to the questions
    that I have within my heart?
    And even more, on down the road
    what does the future hold?
    Success, failure, how does it all go?
    Where will we be, on Tomorrow?

    Wait, let me slow down
    and worry about now.
    I've cried about what there was
    and what there might not be,
    but I shall stop and take a look
    at what there is to see.

    I see a school year coming to a close,
    but keyword: coming
    ...not happened yet.

    I see people (mainly you)
    soon to be gone
    growing up, taking charge
    moving out and moving on.

    But most of all, I see
    an opportunity,
    to make the best of what there is,
    what I have....Today.

    I will embrace it,
    love it,
    learn from it,
    enjoy it in every way.
    I only hope Tomorrow
    will be as good as Yesterday,
    blessed by your friendship,
    just as I am Today.
