The following song is based on the Beatles’ song “Yesterday.” It uses the same tune and has some lyrics in common. I wrote it at an RC workshop, and a group of us sang it during the creativity time.

Life Today

Yesterday,
I thought my sorrows were all here
   to stay.
Now I’m living for today.
Oh, I believe in Life Today.

Suddenly,
Distress ain’t half of what it used to be.
No more shadow hanging over me.
Clearing skies came suddenly.

Why the tears now flow,
Now I know,
Now I can say.
I feel I’ve grown strong,
No need to long
For yesterday. 

Yesterday,
Love just seemed to stay away.
Now I’m feeling love every day.
Oh, I believe in Life Today.
