Original Poem Yesterday Today and Tomorrow Elle Smith


Yesterday Today and Tomorrow



I did not know you,

but you were always in my dreams.

I closed my eyes each night,

and you

winked back at me.



I could not speak to you,

as I did not have the words.

The language of love and affection

always leaves

you quite absurd.



I saw you walking,

and YOU stood out like a star.

You sparkled unlike others,

that’s how

you caught my heart.



I started to imagine,

my life entwined with yours.

Those dreams and aspirations,

were better

together than apart.



I know we will be together,

some things are meant to be.

A future with the only person,

who brought

me to my knees.



I will know the happiness,

I have sought throughout my life.

You and me together at last,

was truly worth

all the sacrifice.



today and tomorrow,

I will love you with pure delight.

Things that don’t come easy

just never

fade with time.
