It's Hard to Let You Go

Today was the Choir's last practice for the academic session of 2010/2011.


Though it means free-er Sundays, it also means saying goodbye to Choir people I've known for 3 years now, who will be leaving UKM as they graduate and grow up from this place.


And that makes me sad. :(


My roomie is leaving this year ! T.T


It didn't even strike me until we were standing in a semi-circle around the piano, as per usual, singing songs we've learned in the past, which brought back sweet memories. And as I looked at all the faces around me, I realized, I may not see some of them anymore after this (or not as often as I'd like T.T).


We've had some really good times together. The love for singing was what brought us here in the first place. True, there were some stressful times that very nearly broke me. But through it all, I always had these people whom I could count on.

MayMay and Chrissy are leaving me too T.T


These people who shared the joy of music and choir-singing. These people who have become like family. We've shared laughs. We've shared tears and frustrations. And we've grown closer because of it :D


Truly, friends are a treasure. And if God is willing, we'll stay friends for always :)


I will miss them.


Dearest LingLing

Many others too, whose photos I don't have in my computer right now. Shucks. :(

And of course, Eugene, who is leaving us for good now T.T (Gosh, why are all these people abandoning ussssssss~ *saddddddd*)

Beloved Choir Master who has been in the Artisukma Choir 
for the past FIFTEEN years. I know exactly how long 
cos he reminds us how OLD he is, constantly. :P


Every year, the last Choir practice is always an emotional one.


But this one is extra so. Only because all my peers and batch mates will be the ones graduating. And I can't shake off this horribly depressing feeling of being left behind. T.T


Anyhow, I wish all of you the best ! May you never lose this joy for singing and music, and may it remain a part of your life in the future, no matter what your profession, where you go, what you do. God bless~


I'll leave you with the lyrics of the song we sand tonight which made me all emo:


Friends
Words and music by
MICHAEL W. SMITH and DEBORAH D. SMITH

Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you
Can't believe the hopes He's granted
Means a chapter in your life is through

But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
Cos in our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say "never"
Cos the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends


My dearest friends, though it's hard to let you go, I know that a lifetime is never too long to live as friends. Love you all :D
