In Memoriam

By: Kimberly P.
Age 15

Friends together on a lonely day
Passing the time with joy
Not knowing what awaits for them
No knowledge of a worldly ploy

Time goes by and so do faces
Faces of those who past you knew
Life is fickle and oh so heartless
The road so long that only grew

Old friends depart and say farewell
And leave so full of hope and care
But as years pass the ones you love
Do fade in moments that you share

So into memory's golden casket
Drop a pearl for me
For the day shall come when my face will pass
And a stranger you will see
