We came each day
We moaned
We groaned
But we learned all the same
Homework piled
The stress level rised
But we never
Let it get us down
Then the end arrived
At first we cheered
And celebrated
But then we hesitated
Realizing what we'd gained
Not just knowledge
But friendships
And we became disjointed
Now we didn't want to leave
For the year to end
Meant friendships lost
With only memories
Of what had been

Until a lone child
stood and called out:
We'll let this get us down?
No. We're united
No matter when or where
So what's one summer
But a bummer?
We will return again
And then we'll moan
And we'll also groan
But we will have learned
All the same

Our spirits lifted
We cheered yet again
For we'd finally learned
A lesson that mattered

I wrote this for my friends when the end of the school year ended and they were moving. I dedicate this to them. I miss you Catie and Alli! But I can't wait to meet you again.
