Tribute to Friendship

July 29, 2012

To All The Girls I Love

Just young kids, really

When we met so long ago

Full of fear and hope,

Dreams that shaped our worlds

 

In that immortal innocence

Walked the campus new

Strangers every one of us

Said our first hellos

 

Giggles, life, and homework

Were shared among us all

Boys and clothes and hair dos

Chapel, class, and work

 

Our life became routine

Content among our friends

Seasons came and went

Graduation day too soon

 

Now forty years have passed

Innocence is gone

But hope and fear and dreams

Within our hearts still live

 

Wisconsin Academy girls

Grown up women we became

Mothers, aunts, and grandmas

     Today and always….the girls I love!Image

    Those were the days, my friend…we thought they’d never end. Oh, to role back the hands of time and relive just a day!
