These Last Days

As we all go about these last days

not even fully knowing whats ahead


excited for it none the less

we take time to sit and reflect

and eventually realize

that we may

never see each other again

The memories of freshman year-

etched into the back of our minds

like the carved names of friends on desks

they will never go away

they will live long after

we leave this place

As we go

we will want

to leave


at the same time


we will live in These last days

for the rest of our lives
