~A Door Closes,Another Opens~
Amy M. Kennedy

one door closes, another opens...like chapters in a book
as this day came to a close, i took one last look
such fond memories i have inside
eight short months ago, now time to say "goodbye"


clients and co-workers all played their part
each making their own special lasting impression on my heart
i am surrounded by so many feelings washing over me
tears blur my vision, making it hard to see

one door closes, another one opens, i wonder what lays in store
I wonder with curiosity, what life has behind the next secret door
so one last goodbye, before i must go
want to take a moment to let u all know

I WILL MISS YOU ALL OF YOU VERY MUCH!!

All my love,
Amy

This was written for my coworkers and clients at my internship. For the past eight months, I have interned at my local dept of social services. i can't even begin to explain how wonderful an experience it has been. i will carry with me MANY fond memories. Thanks for reading guys.

Amy, such a sad time for you! But you will make new friends at the next place...it's hard when we have to leave someone we care about...seems like we do that all too frequently in life...

There is so much truth in the title of this poem. It is something we all should remeber when we are faced with adversity.
Excellent message, and well applied

Amy,
May your journey be prosperous. You will find new friends wherever you go. With a heart like yours it will be easy.

All my love,

perfect amy girl....I know they hate to see you go...
but yes, you are so right
when one door closes...a new one opens and new journeys begin...
and your gonna go for miles ...
you have so much life ahead of you and the possibilities are endless.
Knowing you as I do...
your gonna break the speed of sound  

love ya my amy-girl

 Is it too much to find an answer,
Is it too much to hold you close.
Is it too much to find a reason,
Is it too much to free my soul --
From self control ...
And I know you're always waiting for me ...
You take me far away,
And I know you're holding me ...
And it's better now ...

This is a beautiful poem, and so true. But don't spend so much time staring at the closed door that you forget about the one that has opened for you.
