Yesterday’s Cake

The sun shines through
the kitchen window

Yesterday’s cake
sits on the counter
in mornings light
a reminder of stories told
hugs and handshakes
and candles glowing

A single day
another year passes
ties are renewed
bonds are strengthened
no futures told
no headlines solved
no revelations divulged

A cup of afternoon coffee
a slice of chocolate cake
white frosting brimming
a reminiscence sigh
one more day
of guilt free deserts
and warming thoughts
of yesterday’s cake


This Day

Days pass
and turn
to years
But this day…
This day
We shall never
have again
