Memories float among the abyss,
As hearts smile with joy,
And cry with loneliness.
Although happiness prevails,
The sorrow lingers on.
People glow a new shade,
And life begins to take on new meaning.
The long speeches and the loud applause’s fill the void.
The joyful cheers and the bone crushing hugs subside the pain
Today is graduation day.
It is not an ending but a new beginning.
