When We Graduated in 1986
Life lay before us,
There was so much to do.
The world was ours to conquer and explore
When we left Kinston High School's door.
There were jobs to be found
Further education to be had,
And someday becoming Moms and Dads.
Some chose to travel many miles away
For others, this was the place to stay.
Some may have accomplished
Most of the things they had planned
And think life has been just grand.
While in other lives
Many changes had to be made,
We had to make lots of adjustments
Along life’s way.
No matter what
When we gather once more,
I’m sure we’ll be glad
We’ve made it this far.
But as we read here of the ones we knew,
We will also learn we are short a few.
Some have departed this life along the way
And will be absent from our Reunion day.
Now as they are listed here and read
Some will remember things
That they did or said.
Faces will become vivid once more
Though they won't come thru the Reunion door.
So let us live our lives
Mindful of the things we say and do,
For the next one missing
Might be me or you.
