Yesterday...

Yesterday,
when I was young, yes so very young,
I would have loved to play for hours on end with you.

Yesterday,
when I was young, yes so very young,
I would have loved to walk with you, your hand in mine.

Yesterday,
when I was young, yes so very young,
I would have loved to dream with you, as children often do.

Yesterday,
when I was young, yes so very young,
I would have loved to offer you a flower, or a gift equally fine.

Yesterday,
when I was young, yes so very young,
I would have loved to tease you, make you laugh, make you smile.

Yesterday,
when I was young, yes so very young,
I would have loved to hear your secrets, and you my very own indeed.

Yesterday,
when I was young, yes so very young,
I would have loved to walk with you for a million, treasured miles.

Yesterday,
when I was young, alas so very young,
I would have wanted to be there for you in your most difficult hours of need.

Yesterday...
yes yesterday...
I would have, God knows I would have, had I only known you then...
