"Why go for a 100%, when with a little more, you can have 110%." -KT

A lonely tear falls down
My pale, shrunken face
I push it away because
It is not the time or place

Some of these people
That I have known so long
Are all holding back tears
And are staying so strong

I, on the other hand,
Can’t keep back the tears
Hard to believe I’m saying good-bye
After all of these years

Only good times
Are remembered today
As each one of us
Part our different way

Now we are all moving on
To bigger and better places
Where we will all indeed
Meet new and fresher faces

Friendships may continue to last
While others will be torn apart
The jocks will still play sports
And the nerds will remain smart

Jocks, nerds and everyone in between
I will certainly miss them all;
As the final hug is given,
More tears begin to fall
