As we gaze upon you, our hearts fill with pride,
A human emotion, that is hard to hide,
You took on a challenge, and gave it your best,
Today you stand out, amongst all the rest.
You over came obstacles, you've opened the door,
You now hold the keys to so much more.
As you walk across the stage, you walk not, just for you,
You're walking for all those coming after you.
Through hard work and perseverance you're here today,
We're so very proud of you, needless to say.
You're the first in our family to earn such a prize,
Education is "priceless," and weighty in size.
Now go stake your claim, and get what's yours,
Just spread your wings, and we'll watch you soar.
Your endeavors paid off, in a positive way,
Congratulations are in order! It's Graduation Day!
