We had to say goodbye, leave it behind, in time so far away,
It still stands not only where we left it but always in our minds.
Do you remember a place where friends were together,
A place where we all grew up just a little.
It seemed like we were somewhat older then,
No! we were not, only teenage kids.
We gossiped and fought over silly things,
Our own groups of whom we would let in.
Do you remember a field, a hangout back then,
A parking lot of dirt, later cement.
A quad only for seniors, now funny it seems,
A football team of boys, champions in the end.
Teachers, some we would never forget,
Friends once lost, now friends again.
Vending machines, and lockers, classes to learn in,
Taken a little for granted so many sunrises ago.
Here’s to Esperanza high school, i’m glad it was back then,
Never a group of students and friends like you,
Do you remember a place with such friends.?
