It's Hard to Say Goodbye

by DReAMeRgRL18

I sit here and think back
To these past four years
Memories flood to my mind
And in my eyes, appear the tears

Through these years I've experienced
The love, the joy and pain
Learning each and every day
While precious memories remained

I can't believe how fast it came
How quickly four years went by
That part of life seemed to have passed
With just one blink of my eyes

They say we're to enter a new road
And face new challenges ahead
Towards an unknown future
In the life we've already lead

But the sound of that scares me
Because it involves change
It frightens me to go on further
On this road that seems so strange

Yet I know I can't avoid it
Because that's what life is about
Discovering what the future holds
While walking on the different routes

The memories of these past years
Nothing will ever replace
I capture one last picture
Of each and every face

I will never forget these people
The ones I now call my friends
How do I say goodbye
When it all comes to an end?

From them I've learned so much
How to love and how to care
I cannot imagine going on
With some of them not being there

High school prepared me for everything
Except for how to say goodbye
That moment has now arrived
And all I want to do is cry

But I will hold back my tears
And face this moment in time
I know wherever life may lead us
We will all turn out fine

Someday we will meet again
And be like how we used to
But till that day comes, just know
I will never forget any of you...
