One big class
So many trips
And water fights
With girls in white tee shirts
And guys in great laughter
What fun we had.

Too soon it will end
As we get dressed up
Wheelchairs bumping into one another
Because we are scared
So scared as we read our lines on stage
June 12th and school will be over for us

We will talk all night about friendship
And crushes
And love
And fear
Beyond the day, beyond the night
Beyond this graduation
Our memories indelible
