Graduating

poem by: Michaela Lewis
Written on Aug 29, 2017

It seems I had a dream last night that I was five years old. 
I was taken back to my home town before my house was sold. 
As I lay there lost within a dream, sleeping in my bed, 
Memories of younger days circled in my head. 
I walked along a narrow trail not knowing of its end. 
Then suddenly between the trees stood my life long friend. 
Still as I was dreaming I watched from day to day. 
I never left my best friend's side or lost a moment's play. 
I watched as we grew older; how quickly time had passed. 
All those years behind us had come and gone so fast. 
Then in my dream I saw him there, standing in the crowd. 
His graduation day had come; I'd never been so proud. 
When he walked into the gym that day all dressed in cap and gown; 
I watched and faked a smile while my world turned upside-down. 
I realized then this was no dream and I couldn't help but think, 
of all those years that passed us by when all I did was blink.
