Memories of Yesterday

Memories of Yesterday
Memories of Yesterday

We must always cherish our memories of yesterday. Hold on to those loving and thoughtful memories, for a new tomorrow may never be.

“Memories of Yesterday”
No matter what, onward move the unforgiving hands of time,
Memories of yesterday, as the clock on the hour starts to chime.

Time marches on taking our tomorrow and the plans we had made,
It can take our music, and all the love songs that we’ll never play.

There were never any broken dreams, in our memories of yesterday,
Today, looking towards tomorrow, now seems like an uncertain maze.

Time is a bandit and can take away the future we will never know,
It can steal our dreams of all the places that we said we would go.

Whatever the future holds in all of the tomorrows is yet to be awaken,
Our memories of yesterday, are now entrenched and cannot be taken.

Time moving forward, stealing what should have been, is one of my fears.
Will tomorrow or the next day bring reflection in a widening pool of tears?

No matter what, onward move the unforgiving hands of time,
Memories of yesterday, as the clock on the hour starts to chime.

One of my tales on the NEW Kindle Vella: 
The Tartarus Variant: 
2019 saw the spread of the Coronavirus across the world. Then Coronavirus mutated into a different variant. Then variants such as Delta, Omicron, and then 10 other variants quickly engulfed the planet. In the year 2041, the 13th variant Tartarus became dominant. The world’s infrastructure finally collapsed – setting what remained of humanity on the brink of extinction. This was a one-man, one-dog, and one-horse’s story of survival, until Dixon Mateo rescued a girl named Alba Jesse.
One of my tales on the NEW Kindle Vella: 
Rocky Mountain Moonshiner:
In 1922, all Trent Laneetee, also known as the Crow, wanted to do was support his family. Once the state of Colorado went dry during prohibition, the most profitable way to do that was to sell his own whiskey. As Trent’s operation got larger, his business drew the attention of the Denver Mafia. They gave Laneetee an ultimatum of sharing his business and profits with the Denver Mafia or going to war with them. What the gangsters from Denver did not know – was you did not threaten Trent Laneetee.
