Saying goodbye is hard to do
People try and never think about their friends graduating. You put the thought out of your head, but when the time gets closer, you are overwhelmed with feelings. You never realize how close those people are to you until they’re gone. For me, it happened two weeks early.
I never thought this day would come. I put every thought of graduation out of my head because I knew it would tear me up inside. Most of my friends are seniors, and they are like my brothers and sisters. I walk down the hall and give them a smile; I say that I hope they go far with their future…but inside I am crying and begging them to stay.
I have had numerous seniors that have helped me grow, walk with my faith in Christ, mature, and realize that beauty isn’t just skin deep. Last year was terrible. I had NO ONE; however, there was one person who came to me from out of the blue. It was a royal mess last year and that person stuck with me through all of my trials. I am so lucky to have him in my life, and he will forever be in my heart. His name is Raphinos Uragu, and I LOVE him! I pray that his career will take him far. He plans on moving back to Zimbabwe right after graduation this year.
Someone else that has dearly touched my life is Kaitlyn Johnson. She has been like a motherly sister to me since my sophomore year. She always solves the soprano drama, and when I need a shoulder to cry on, hers is the perfect height. I can’t imagine a day without her, I am blessed that she is staying here in Wylie to go to Collin College and be a student teacher with East choir.
I will miss every one of the seniors and they are all truly loved. I am blessed to have every one of them in my life.
