Of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow…

A Tribute to Manny Galera, 1935-2005

I experienced the difficulty of loss YESTERDAY,
While reflections of happy memories kept coming my way.
How hard I thought was TODAY’S “Letting Go…”
As a voice in me kept repeating… “No, No, No…”
With Prayers and Thanksgiving came Joy and Gladness,
And not wanting to live with memories in Sadness.
The Love of Family and many friends who cared,
And the “Don’t Have Pity Parties” of a Mentor shared,
Encouraged me to move forward to a brighter… TOMORROW,
Knowing that life experiences should NOT be a living Sorrow.
