Tears from the depth of some divine despair.
Rise in the heart and gather to eyes. In looking on the happy autumn fields.And thinking of the days that are no more.
There is hardly any living being who has not gone through ups and downs of life. Actually, life is full of bad as well as good incidents. Some of them may be forgotten, whereas others leave an everlasting imprint on the mind. Helen Keller says:
“Write the bad things that are done to you on the sand, but the good things that happen to you on a piece of marble.”
In the storehouse of my memories, my last day at college occupies a prominent position. I can never forget that day when I left college and entered my professional life. My college was the place where I spent two golden years of my life. Those happy days, noisy laughter and careless wandering still haunt my memory. My last day at college is still fresh in my memory.
“We look before and after, And pine for what is not:
Our sincerest laughter With some pain is fraught;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell of the saddest thought.”
A college is place where a man sees the dreams of the bright future. Students are sent to the colleges to become sophisticated and expedient citizens of the nation. College is the place where the youth of the nation is prepared to make their mark in practical life. A college always promises a bright future to those who are committed and steadfast.
“A college is lighthouse which emits radiations of wisdom and knowledge.”
There are some moments in our life which we can never forget. Such moments always glitter with sweet and bitter memories.
“Memory is the treasury and guardian of all the things.”
The 31st of March was my last day at the college. That day is still fresh in my memory as it was one of the most unforgettable days of my life. I was sad and happy at the same time. I was sad because I was parting with my beloved college. But I was happy too, because I was getting closer to my cherished aim of life. That day I headed to my college with a heavy heart and heavy steps. After one month, the examination would start. I recollected my first day at the college. The sweet memories of the last two years began to glitter in my mind. There was a smile on my lips and tears in my eyes.
“Friends depart, and memory takes them To her caverns, pure and deep.”
In our college, there is a tradition that the junior students give a farewell party to the senior outgoing students. The last day in the college is made a memorable occasion for them. According to the tradition of the college, the students of the First-Year class organized a splendid function. The college was decorated with buntings and flags. First of all, we assembled in the
lawn of the college for a group photograph. Then, we went to the college hall for further activities.
The principal of our college presided over the function. The representative of the First- Year class made a farewell speech. He paid thanks to the Second-Year students for their co- operation and guidance. He pledged to follow the foot-prints of the seniors. I, on behalf of my class fellows, made a speech. I paid thanks to the teachers for their tireless and selfless efforts to enlighten the minds of the students. I also appreciated the juniors for arranging such a glorious function in the honour of the outgoing senior students.
Then the worthy principal made an elegant speech. He advised us to perform our duties honestly as a student and as a citizen of the civil society. In the end, our principal gave us his blessings and wished us success in our future career. It was an inspiring and memorable speech. All the students clapped when he finished his speech.
The formal speeches were followed by a variety show. It was organized for the entertainment of the students and guests. The students performed a few fun-fair items. At the end of the show, we were served with tea, biscuits, cakes and fruit. It was the end of a splendid span of two years at my college. I had spent a lot of happy time there. I took part in debates and sports actively and won many prizes. Some of my teachers greatly influenced me and enlightened my outlook. I also make a few new friends whose nice company was unforgettable for me. In words of Wordsworth:
“The music in my heart I bore Long after it was heard no more.”
The last day at my college was, indeed, a memorable day in my life. All the outgoing students took leave of their teachers and friends with heavy hearts. When I was leaving my college, there were tears in my eyes.
“Heavy hearts, like heavy clouds in the sky,
Are best relieved by the letting of water.”
Then came the time of separation. Our hearts were heavy with mixed feelings. From the noises and laughter of the grand gathering in the spreading lawns of the college, we came out into the stillness of darkness and night. Weighed down with a heavy heart and moving along the lonely road on my motorbike late at night, my mind was aching with the memories of the good days spent in my college.
“Farewell my friends, farewell my foes, My love with these, may care for those.”
