A Golden Day

A sunset burnished with a warming glow entertained us,
We waited to see the summer evening vanish and the stars appear,
It was a day of celebration,
We had both got the results we needed to go to college,
School had ended light years before, or so it felt,
But this was our real goodbye,
A farewell to childhood friendship that had protected us through our adolescent battles,
We had ripened into young adults,
It was time for life to harvest our rich crop of youthful hopes,
Would we ever stand together again sharing our dreams?
Perhaps not,
But the memory of the rustling wind brushed wheat, rushing clouds and our friendship, might just remain
tattooed forever in our minds.
