It was sung by “The Beatles” for their album “Help” in 1965. Since then, the song has achieved milestones over the years. It is a melancholy about a broken love relationship sung by a single member of “The Beatles”. The story symbolizes the yesterday for the happy days of the past when there used to be joys all around. The basic theme of the song is the message which tells never to lose your love and try to maintain it for the whole of your life. It is love that beautifies the life and nothing else. When there remains no love, one earnestly waits and desires for it to come back. But that never happens as the time once gone never returns. The small lyrical ballad is outstanding in the sense that it narrates the whole story from the very beginning to the end. It has the memories of the golden days, of the separation and the longings for the days to return. The song is complete in nature to the extent that it covers the whole of turns and twists a love-story brings with it. The song begins with the title word, “yesterday”. The poet starts to tell the story of his failure. He tells the reader that there was a time when everything went right for him. There was beauty and love. Life was magnificent. He adds: “all my troubles seemed so far away” informing the audience that his life had no miseries, sorrows and concerns. What he had to care for was the sweet moments he could enjoy with his girl-friend. Life was no more than a story of the dreamland where all the demands were accord approval. But he knows nothing what happened to his life? The charm of life then was get up from the deep sleep. The troubles which he bade “good bye” had arrived again. They had the intentions to live there forever: “now it looks as though they are here to stay”. But as is the nature of love and the story with every lover, hope plays its role does not letting the lover leave its rope; just stick to it. He believes in the honesty of the “yesterday” in the words: “oh, I believe in yesterday”. The way the “yesterday” is appealed here is heart-touching. It looks like he is negotiating with the yesterday to persuade her to bring the gone glory to his life once again. Then comes the part of the story where the poet tells us the situation at the present. He tells: “suddenly, I am not half the man I used to be”. The poet shows us the ruins of his dream valley in the words that he is no more the perfect person. He is living with a broken heart. He sees no attraction in life any more. He convinces us that life comes from inside and it does not matter what looks outside. A man hit at heart can never be taken as alive though walking like a live man. He goes further explaining that: “there’s a shadow hanging over me”. The darkness prevails over him. He sees no light to proceed in the course of life. Something ugly like shadow has taken possession of him. He is not able to see beyond that shadow and for him; the world is a place of anxiety. The poet goes further and complains against the instability of the world and all that is inside it including humans. He weeps that the routine of life did not give him enough time to get to the taste of joys to his full. It was so much a short time for the enjoyment of his love. The troubles were in a very much hurry as to replace the pleasures. The poet’s desire for the “yesterday”
