Graduate

Graduate 

Verb

To complete a course of study

Thirteen years since you had a cubby 

In your kindergarten class

The final one you passed

And tonight you stand together

And diplomas you gather 

Tassels moved to the side

Parents hearts filled with pride

Parties you attend to celebrate

Money, gifts, graduation cake 

Family and friends from near and far

Tonight you’re the shiny star 

Tomorrow begins a new adventure

One challenge gives way to another

Many their advice will give 

But you’ve only one life to live

So look inside yourself to find 

The strength to ever climb 

To the mountain tops that call

For you to conquer peeks so tall
