Goodbye To You/ Graduation Day

Sat, 11/14/2015 - 19:28 -- deb3u

I still remember the young girl with the braids in her hair,

Living her life freely without a care anywhere,

Playing double dutch and hopscotch at the park,

Tripping and falling creating scars and marks,

But now I have grown up and there's something I must do,

I'm sitting here at graduation saying goodbye to you,

And goodbye to everything that I knew.

 

Seventeen years later and I can't believe it,

Childhood is over and I have to quit it,

This part of my life is ending,

And a new part is beginning,

It's a big change and I can't keep up,

The train to a new life is two steps away and I'll have to jump,

But before I do I'm walking to the stage saying goodbye to you,

And everything that I knew.

 

In my mind I'll always be that girl,

No matter how many barrettes I took out and replaced with a curl,

I wish I could go back and live those years one more time,

But that would mean that I have to start all over with my climb,

No matter what I do I'm going to the top,

I don't care how much the ground shakes and how hard it rocks,

But before I do there's something I must do,

I'm tossing my cap up in the air saying goodbye to you,

And goodbye to everything that I knew.
