Only one life
Soon will be gone
End of your lyric
But not of your song
When it is sung
What will it say
Will it be bright, or
Will it be gray
Self focused or not
Adventure or fear
Aimless or purposed
Will it be clear
More than memories
Make a legacy
Invest life wisely
Before you're set free
I remember when we were growing up and the first day I started school.
I was nervous as could be, and then you walked in trying to be so cool.
As the year progressed we became very close, and you took me
under your wing, and I think thats what I admired about you the most.
I remember by the time we reached middle school people thought we were
related,and as I think back about how shy I was and how I am now just
makes me elated.
By the time we reached high school we did just about everything together,
and vowed that even after graduation no matter what we would remain friends
College came and we both knew that we would regret this day, for I knew
you were the smarter one therefor I knew we would have to go our sererate
The years have past and time has been good to us. Both or us married, kids
our health, and our friendship still in tact is better than any amout of wealth.
People say time goes on and accept things for the way that they are,
but I'm here to tell you our friendship will never change, and I know
that in my heart because no matter what the distance we were friends
from the very start.
I was just trying to remember the past
trying to remember the good people
and the bad people,
that i came across on my way,
i want you to know
that you are among the good people
that left a good trace in my life,
once again i just want to say thank you
for passing through my life,
is so short but is wonderful
i want you here forever.
12 long years over so fast
Time long gone we can't go back
School is done, we're on our way
The rest of our lives start today
Doors are opening its our time now
To choose our futures, to make the world bow
We are the world, we are the future
It's our time to shine, no one can stop us now
Corous. We're graduates (graduates)
our lives just beginning
The future is now
And it's ours for the taking
We're graduates (graduates)
The keys in our hand
Unlock any door
On our own feet we stand
Our paths undecided we work as a team
Dodge any obstacle dream any dream
We fought the battle, won the war
Now on stage together sounds our victory roar
Friends and enemies gathered together
To head towards new beginnings, the star of forever
We're brave, we're strong were proud and true
We can do anything we set our minds to
We're graduates (graduates) memories we hold dear
Of the guidance of teachers the reason we're here
We're graduates (graduates) taking each stride as one
As we head toward a future that has only begun
We're graduates (graduates)
The key in our hand
We're graduates (graduates)
United we stand
I, a stranger here
in this unknown place
a swarm of new faces
moving at their own paces
In the wandering crowd
lost as i was
their came piercing
a ray of hope, blinding
an inspiration, a support
a guardian angel so sweet
brimming with love potion
spreading an aura of compassion
her sufferings hidden by a mask
of sweet smile that brighten my day
with love immense to share
and a heart that care
she extended her hand
prodding me to thrive
led me through the hurdles
paving way to success
my second mother
always close to my heart
shining with a brilliance
that can hush the stars.

I'm not ready
how could they think I was
I'm not ready for the world
to leave it all behind just cause
I'm not ready to move on
to tell all I love good bye
I'm not ready to graduate
will someone tell me why?
why does it have to end
especially so soon
I'm to young to be on my own
please tell me what to do
18 is not that old at all
to grow up and be an adult
to have a job and pay my bills
I know nothing of that stuff
please somebody help me
there has to be a way
school is all I've ever known
I won't be ready on graduation day
A little baby girl
not even one year old
without her daddies arms
the nights felt very cold
daddy I cant breath
so to the hospital they go
mommy held me down
where was my daddy though?
16 years had gone
my dad was mostly there
but that morning he left
I said I didn't care
for two years I barely saw him
just talked to him now and then
but still I believed in him
and I'll choose to believe again
My graduation came
he promised me he'd come
but when I walked across the stage
I only saw my mom
Why weren't you there daddy?
I still believe in you
I love you daddy and always will
please just show you love me too
Shouldn't this be simple?
I got my graduation ring but my mind's in a haze.
Dazzled by her beauty, I can't help but stare 'cause she's never there.
This day on Saturday she finally answered.
I want to straighten things out with her but I might as well join the millions of rejected
You know, the ones who died from a "heart attack," the ones that were driven insane,
especially the ones that feel no pain.
I look back on yesterday, now today, and I find myself looking for a place called home.
Conjured all of this up in my imagination but all I could do is watch her fade away.
Out of my mind, out of my heart, but how do I still have a crush on her?
The Lord has always been with me and my family but I've strayed away from my faith.
I hope he can forgive me and lead me to her heart... wherever it may lay.
I do not know?
High school days are gone
And all the work are done
As we are about to take a leap
Our memories together I will keep
There will be tears to cry
As we move on and bid goodbye
I know it will be hard to fly
Without you on my way up high
Thanks for the lift
That is a great gift
The jokes and your smile
Made me forget the pain for a while
Now is the time to take the crown
Don't face the world with a frown
Let them see your smiling face
And dancewith them with grace
When all of today's work are done
It doesn't mean our freindship is gone
I hope someday you'll be fine
You'll realize that . . .
Graduation is not Goodbye
