Yesterday life was so precious, so new

Filled with the promise

Of dreams to come true

Yesterday we held hands

And walked in the lane

Yesterday I asked you

To take my ring and my name

Yesterday we took our stroll down the aisle

Yesterday we married

We did it in style

Yesterday we had a daughter

We had a child, can this be true?

Yesterday we had a son

And now there are two.

Yesterday our daughter took our son by the hand

Helping him to walk, helping him to stand

Yesterday all of our parents

Were here and alive

Helping us along, helping us strive

Yesterday our grandparents

They were here too

Loving and laughing

Seeing us thru

Yesterdays are such a very special time

Single days in a journey

All falling into line

And what do you think happens

When yesterdays are all thru?

Why, we give them our blessings

And pass them all on to you.

2001, Meiji Stewart

These little hands can wave hello

or put smudges on the wall.

They can fold in prayer, throw a kiss

or reach up when I say, "so tall."


They will clasp your hand for an Autumn stroll

Or shape a dinosaur from clay.

But most of all, they will stay

with you when I'm grown and far away.

Love is patient,

Love is kind.

It bears all things,

Believes all things,

Hopes all things,

Endures all things.

Love never fails.

1 Corinthians 13:4,7,8
