Can't Fool Me

Sadness engulfs me and I don't know why,
I'm surrounded by people but I feel lonely. 
I find myself putting a smile on my face to hide my true feelings.
I fool those around me,  they don't know my suffering.
I walk past a crowd of people with my head held high,  holding back the tears that are starting to sting my eyes.
I may fool them,  but I can't fool myself.
The sadness engulfs me. 

Je ne t'oublierai jamais (I'll never forget you)

So much unsaid that now I can't say.
I'm stuck in the past with no closure,
no way to say goodbye to someone who meant so much.

I celebrate you everyday,
in my classroom, with my students, with my friends.
I am who I am today because you being a part of my life
changed me for good.

I'll never forget your humor or your amazing personality.
I'll never forget what you taught me.
Tu me manques et je ne t'oublierai jamais.
