graduation


Graduation Day is the climax of a
dream.
A parental dream that began
when a child is born,
And their hope come true it
would seem,
A triumph held after periods of
forlorn,
A feeling of pride and euphoria
years away
For a daughter or son -
Graduation Day.
It is a peak of success for the
graduate,
Not only for the graduate but
parents too.
A joyful event after many years
they had to wait,
Realizing the glorious thrill of a
dream come true,
A genuine smile accompanied by
a deep sigh,
Often a handkerchief in hand as
the class goes by.
Graduation is a deserving, hard
earned goal
With mortarboard and gown as
foretold,
A gratifying service of the mind
and soul
In a simple and beautiful
sheepskin told
That the graduate fulfilled the
educational rule.
At last, for the mother and father,
a dream come true.
Graduation Day!
