SHEEPSHEAD BAY HIGH SCHOOL REUNION
Waiting for this day for well over a year
bring back some memories we all once shared.
will I say, what will my classmates say to me?
look the same?
they remember my name?
hair is less
my belly is more,
all grew up together that cannot be ignored.
thirty came and I opened the Aquarium door.
my high school picture on my lapel, before I could turn around I heard someone
yell, "Hey Shel", People started to pile in, hugging and kissing, So many
familiar faces so wonderful to see, Many voices heard, "hey remember me." I saw
Stuie, Mike, Naomi and Fred, Walter, Sheila, Matthew and Ted. Ronnie, Bonnie,
Jackie and Sue. Linda, Marvin, Richard and Lou. Johnnie, Connie, Morty and
Steve. So many names it is hard to believe. The music, the food all added to
the night. Before I knew it, twelve o'clock came and There was no one in sight.
Not much time to see and talk to everyone. It was a very special night. I hope
we will do it again, To celebrate our lives and remember when.
This poem is dedicated to the teachers and classmates who have passed away, but
will remain forever in our hearts.
