I attended my little brother's Gala Evening (since it's his last get-together before he starts high school) and the teachers were all talking about how they'll never see them again and eventually they'll be forgotten. Something one of the new teachers said stuck, and I wrote this poem.
He reminded me that I'm almost at the end of high school - and that no doubt I'll be leaving behind some old friends and making new ones.
So in this poem, I tried to incorporate the idea of friendships drifting apart over time, and also, those that end in bitterness.
But there's always those few special friends that remain with you, even as the years pass us by.
