TODAY I VISITED YESTERDAY

                                                Today I visited yesterday,
                                        And walked among the graves
                                    Of family and friends from long ago.
                                      Whose memory had begun to fade.

                                         The graves were unattended
                                        As were my thoughts of them
                                       When a vision of the ages past
                                        Brought back my sense of kin.

                                     The vision showed the church lawn
                                           On a crisp summer day
                                     The table spread, the food prepared
                                     And friends who would break bread

                                         All my relatives were there.
                                            Both young and old
                                    Grandma and I walked hand and hand
                                         Sharing stories never told

                                         We laughed and cried and
                                            Shared our thoughts.
                                    And I found the friend I thought I lost.
                                          As the sun began to fade

                                       The church bell rang out clear
                                 Grandma and the others slowly disappeared
                                          Today I visited yesterday
                                       And now the memory is strong

                                      Of the family from which I came
                                            AND NOW BELONG
 


From “How Green Was My Valley” by Richard Llewellyn:

 "I saw behind me those who had gone, and before me those who are to come, I looked back and saw my
father,and his father, and all our fathers, and in front to see my son, and his son, and the sons upon sons.

And their eyes were my eyes.

  As I felt, so they had felt and were to feel, as then, so now, as tomorrow and forever. Then I was not afraid, for I
 was in a long line that had no beginning and no end, and the hand of his father grasped my father's hand, and his
 hand was in mine, and my unborn son took my right hand, and all, up and down the line that stretched from Time
That Was to Time That Is, and Is Not Yet, raised their hands to show the link, and we found that we were one, born
   of Woman, Son of Man, made in the Image, fashioned in the Womb by the Will of God, the Eternal Father."
