ANOTHER TIME AND PLACE
I write to you from yesterday, a very long time ago for you,
Long before you were born in a town of people and family.
My family and I were up before the break of dawn, working,
Children of a simple time but at times not so simple you see.
Horses were a common thing just as your car is in your time,
Things of your day not dreamed up as of yet, life was hard, also fun.
Here in yesterday there is sickness that kills many as there is no medicine,
As I sit here on my farm watching my wife and kids play I write this to you.
When you receive my letter it will be that I and those I love will be gone now,
You will have all the things that we here have never seen, good and bad.
There are beautiful things and land that will disappear with time, I can see them,
I live here in another time and place just as you do, I hope this letter gets to you.
Reblogged this on The Reluctant Poet and commented:
Come read a letter from yesterday!
This was very beautiful, and a great concept.
Thanks for your thoughts
thanks so much
Quite interesting. Has a movie like quality to it…I mean, it’s one of those things that bring imagery to my head and I see it playing as a film.
Thank you for reading.
