Thinking about the past

Sometimes yesterday feels like another life
More than a world away
There is no way to return to the past
Somehow, it seems this is for the best

The mind remembers worry and suffering
Often things do not go as expected
Expecting the worse, better happened
And those griefs that came were a surprise

So many old friends and acquaintances
So many years have passed without words
It seems that an old world can vanish
The mind wonders where they all are now

Soon the mind must focus on the future
What will come tomorrow,
What will be preserved,
Where is there meaning….

Perhaps the mind should relax and see the moment
The worries of today are more than enough
