Colourful costumes and wary looks;
Will the weather hold out?
Bags full of goodies,
Last minute shopping trips,
Jokes under the sun,
Waiting for the gang to arrive.
Laughter on the road as we walk,
Jokes and references only we get.
It’s the last few days; this is the end,
So if everything is a little brighter,
If our smiles are a little wider,
What of it?
We have our whole lives ahead.
Just let us cling to this past,
Just for a little longer.
