Standard Ten Farewell - Poem by Allen Brodell

One special night
charged with excitement
cheerfulness and celebration
to remember for a long time

It is the matric farewell
a good -bye to twelve long years
to friends and friendships
cemented in the years

Stepping out of a mercedes, olive green
two young couples
elegantly dressed they are
they stand for a picture
captured on film for all time
memento for life

A prayer is prayed in silence
a prayer that comes from far away
delivered on the wings of the Angles
riding on waves of the wind
in the dark night with it's bright lights
that God will bless them this night
as they slip out of their childhood shoes
into their adult shoes

That His love, Mercy and Protection
will always be with them
for life's journey ahead of them
for a few, it will be a short journey
for others a long journey
God bless - Amen
