Graduating class of 08

by james   Jun 6, 2008

We stand before you
The class of 2008

Some of us are sad
And some are quite relieved
Our times together are over
As our diplomas are received

I can't mention all the people
Who hold a place in my heart
I cherish each and every one
Good luck on your new start

This past year of High School
Has been the very best
We made new friends, met new people,
And put old friendships to the test

But now it is time to look to the future
Instead of gazing at what is gone
The sun is setting on this part of life
And tomorrow brings a new dawn

Our lives are just beginning
And our fate is ours to choose
We can't control the obstacles
But it's our choice to win or lose

Hard times will be ahead
You will just have to be strong
Don't lose faith and never quit
The good times will follow along

We would not be where we are today
Without the help from a person or two
Our family's deserve all the credit
For the people you see before you

The time has come for us
The class of 2008
to leave behind the memories
And say all our goodbyes

I never could have imagined
How hard this day would be
To say goodbye to friends and peers
Who seem like my family

We haven't always gotten along;
We've had our share of fights
But overall we've made it through
To stand before you with delight

To the class of 2008, I congratulate you
On a job very well done
Our future is out there waiting...
Good luck, and have fun!!!

    This is an amazing piece of work. The sadness of having to say goodbye and the hopes and dreams of the graduating seniors.... you have written about all these feelings with such honesty that I can really feel and relate to what you are feeling.
