It Was Only Yesterday

It was only yesterday, that a little baby girl was born,





To Bud and Evie, early in the morn.





This little babe grew up in a small town,





Where everyone was happy, and no one would frown.





It was only yesterday, that as a teen, would dabble with her art,





thinking, as a career, it may not be to smart.





It was only yesterday, she married in sixty-nine,





And gave birth to her own little girl in the winter time.





It was only yesterday, as this new babe grew and grew,





And became a sister in the cold months too.





Unfortunatly that marriage was very wrong,





And it ended before to long.





It was only yesterday, when a new man came into sight,





That marriage was oh so right.





It was only yesterday, that a son was born to these two,





They loved watching him as he grew.





It was only yesterday, another son came to be,





and opened my eyes to really see.





It was only yesterday, God knocked on my door,





I asked Him in and received much more.





It was only yesterday, through much love and strife,





That I finally opened up about my life.





It was only yesterday, that I realized how far I had come,





gone through so much as many others had done.





It was only yesterday, the last day of my 61st year,





That I could look at my life and not shed a tear.



Yes.........It all...........was only yesterday!
