A Sad Good-bye to Yesteryear

                                                             Today is a Good Old Day

In life there’s many story’s told,
if you have  an ear to hear.
Today I hear so many though
sadly compared to yesteryear.

When everything seemed better
hope was renewed each day.
But I wonder if back then
that’s what we’d hear them say.

Or then as now did they complain
of difficulties of the times.
The long forgotten miseries
that some how slip our minds.

I also have often thought
that things were better way back when,
and missed the blessings of the day
I now know that is sin.

Each day is filled with blessings
if we have eyes to see,
It seems it all depends on where
our focus is to me.

Hope does spring eternal
when our eyes are on the Lord
Who said to, “give our cares to Him”
and have our hope restored.

      Today is a ‘good old day’
