We’re gonna miss you on these raggedy streets

With your pep in your step

And your trash can drum beats


And that old brick wall with the ivy growin’

It ain’t’ gonna stop just because you’re goin’


I know you’re leavin’ to a better place

You’ll see people

With their fancy hair

And a fancy face


But when you see them

Remember us

What a time we had

In that broken down bus


I know you have to leave

You’re a star and you know it

A star

You have to go and show it

Show them who you are


You are a great person

You’ve been a great friend

If there is one thing I know,

It’s that

This ain’t the end

    This poem is great! I imagine it as a rap about someone leaving their hometown for stardom….

    This is an amazing poem and would probably make a fantastic song.

    I wrote this poem after reading some of maya angelou’s poetry. She is so inspiring.

    Partings, saying good-bye…life does continue. We have our remembered images of shared joys. Thank you for this poem.
