My Graduate

walking down the aisle
tall and handsome
he looks around and sees
faces watching as he goes by
finding me he grins with that 
impish little smile he has 
full of the devil that smile
where has the time gone
he reminds me of my son
who died at only eleven
he is taller two years older
this grandson of mine
time repeating itself
with memories and oh my
he looks so much like him
full of hopes and dreams
nothing elementary about him
girls checking him out
giggling and flirting 
as he saunters on through
on the stage he receives a 
well earned diploma
for all his hard work
studying and playing
such an athlete so strong
he takes his prize 
with smiles and a nod
here he comes to my side
a gentle hug and tender kiss
my graduate
