Last days bring
Reflection
Reminders
And memories, episodic
Of laughter-filled moments
Rewarding times
Of growth and opportunity
Stressed-out days
Midnight calls crying
Of death, of life.

A place of family
Not co-workers
Nor bosses
All of us students
Parents
Brothers
Sisters
All held together
By a mantra
So simple,

Of kindling flame.

As my flame grows
I don’t depart
I leave this place
With a heavy heart
Not weighed down in sorrow
But laden in joy
For all lives touched
For my life enriched
In this place held dear
A new journey begins
Towards and away from better things.

Thank you all.
