If you want things that way

If you saw me yesterday,
I was wandering with nothing to say.
The wind was cold,
the leaves were falling
in shades of gold.
In a sliver of a mirror I saw that I am old
but  that was yesterday


If you saw me yesterday
throwing  pennies  from the train,
this I can’t explain.
I was almost asleep when the shadows came
to steal from my soul
all  the things I need to hold
but that was yesterday.


And if you  really want to see me now
you can walk down memory lane
And if you want to touch me
you only need to call my name
They say all things must pass
I say love remains.


If you saw me yesterday
you  saw a child with nothing to say
The moon was full, the stars were falling
I counted every one
then caught a few to wear as jewels
I felt so pretty
but that was yesterday when I could break the rules


And if you want to see me now
you can walk down memory lane
And if you want to touch me
you only need to call my name
They say all things must pass
I say love remains
I’ve been waiting for you to come this way again
