Can the calendar lie?
It must be lying; it can't have already been almost a year.
I check again; the calendar speaks the truth.
It's the first of May today.
I can hardly believe it.
Is it me, or has the year flown by, unnoticed on silent, aging wings?

Soon my friends will leave for college, never to be seen again.
Soon all I will have left are memories.
I have not stopped to cherish the moments spent with them.
All the laughter and happiness will be whisked away with the end of the school year.
Have I really been so blind to my oncoming fate?

Life has gone by fast.
Have I been left out or have I just left myself out?


A/N: Not really my usual genre of writing, but it hit me today. Wow. It's all gone by so fast.
