This song was composed primarily on the evening of December 26, 2012 with immediate feedback by my sister, Jasmine.
An early version was published in Volume 3, Issue 1 of The Trumpet.
Our cheerful voices let us raise,
And sing a parting song;
Although I'm with you now, my friends,
I can't be with you long.
For I must go and leave you all,
It fills my heart with pain;
Although we part, perhaps, in tears,
I hope we'll meet again.
