The Graduate

The Graduate
Lionel Derbyshire

The twinkle in her eye
matched the passion
Of her amibitous heart
Today is grand
Today she graduates
Today she becomes
The Graduate.
She set her sight
To moist beautiful Cape
With only a pair of pump's
On her feet to climb
A mountain waiting her.
Her void at home
Became hard to bear
It was knowing to all
Her absence will
Become valour
When you all alone
She fought like
A bear with leopard grip
And bumped her storms
Elephant style.
Her rosy cheeks
In times hard
withered dispair
She kept on fighting
Back and forth
For one day 
she will become
The Graduate.
Her guide was God
Who held her hand.
She kept her smile
Throughout and changed
The colour of her pump's
Now her stage is set
For occasion graduate
Awaiting HER receive
A graduates degree
Her mountain she conquered.
Her sweet scented tale 
Is a lovely vapour to inhale
A daughter graduates
A parent's pride
A twinkle in a teary eye.

A twinkle ..
Start to finish
Her shining Glory
Amen GOD.

On the
9th June 2016 in
