High School Memories This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Even though I know how far apart we'll be

Forever together, always in my mind

Going through the memories we've made

How insignificant they seemed then

I look back now and see how much they really meant

Just you was all it took

Kind and gentle was your voice

Laughs from you always made me smile

My four years of high school have meant so much

Now and forever I will always carry them with me

On graduation day

Peers always say their last good-bye

Quite sad I will be

Remembering those times we shared together

So quickly our time together flew by

Touching my feelings deeply inside

Until now I didn't know how much you really meant to me

Venturing into something brand new

Waiting to see what the future holds for us

Xpecting that we'll be together

You'll never know how much I love you

Zero moments not thinking of you

Ask me and I will tell

Because you are the only one that I

Consider my best friend and only love

Don't forget me

I agree with the first part of your comment. The first time I read it I thought it was nothing special but after I read it again I actually really liked it

This really makes me think of how fast these four years have flown by. I haven't really had that one person with me through all four years, but I have grown really close to a few people this year who I don't want to leave next year ):

This was such a great piece! Also very creative!!! High School is such a grand part of any teenager's life. You captured that idea very ideally! Once again, it was great! (:

Awwww. This was such a great poem and so sad:( I literally feel like ima bout to cry, and i haven't cried reading anyones poems yet. as i type this my eyes are filling up. because i'm currently on the verge of maybe being in a relationship where we've liked eachother for three years. and ima bout to be a junior in high school. and we like eachother soooo much, but i have this fear of being in relationships, that they'll never work out, that we'll just break up and be hurt in the end anyways, ...

It was funny that something as simple as "Don't forget me" made the poem. I liked it.
