Softly, you wiped away my tears.
Your low, strong voice gave me comfort, making me feel secure.
You were standing beside me that day.
Sandy-blonde hair, tossed by the sea breeze and salty air.
You were tall and golden brown from the summer sun.
Your grin was unmistakable.
Your smile was infectious.
That naughty little boy smirk…letting your love for life escape.
Your vibrant blue eyes squinted in the brilliant sunlight,
void of the sunglasses that normally obscured your vision.
You were capable of making me believe that I,
alone could conquer the world.
We stood silent that day.
Side by side.
A perfect duo.
Proud of our accomplishments.
Our parents and friends admired us from a distance.
I knew in my heart, at the end of the day, when the ceremony concluded,
You would be gone.
The farewells had been exchanged,
I knew at the end of this perfect day,
we would once again become
two lost souls.
I will miss you my friend.
Your understanding, your laughter, your smile.
I knew that at the end of this perfect day,
We would each chose a different path.
My happiness is soon abruptly ended,
knowing that our lives will never cross again
Our college days would become only great memories.
