14 May

Here’s my toast from tonight at Candlelight:

I carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
          i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

I only know some of you by name and major, others I know so well I can tell what mood you’re in by what movie you’re watching. Despite the different levels of friendship in this room, we all have something in common. We are all the Class of 2009.

When we walk across the stage on Saturday, we will have accomplished so much, together and apart, and everyone will know of our bond. It is likely that after Saturday we will never all be assembled together like this again. But we will carry each other’s hearts. We will be forever real. We will be forever remarkable. We will be forever red. And forever we will be the Class of 2009.


I love my class! I can’t believe we’re already graduating, and I can’t imagine my life without you!
