The Passing Out Song


Sitting out here, I’m feeling so lonely
All my friends have gone a thousand miles away
Though the doors of life opened for us – together
Why does my step have to stagger at the very outset – today

I still remember the times we used to have
The frolic in the morning and the ten miles that we ran
But all too soon the time had come to say goodbye
As into this world we marched to the Auld Lang Syne

    I liked this because I could identify and relate; not everyone, as you know, has that commonality. It may be that there's room for expansion to the point of doubling content. (Report) Reply
