Daughter's Graduation

On the day of her daughter's graduation, her parents let her know how proud they are.

While looking up at the stars and moon,
We realize that you grew up too soon.
We remember the day you were born,
And now look at you all big and grown.
We remember your first day of school,
You were too scared to break a rule.
You made us proud throughout 6th grade,
We told you that there was no reason to be afraid.
In junior high, you gave us a hard time,
But we stuck by you through dark and shine.
While in high school, you had your fun,
From the security guards you would run.
After a while you settled down,
You met a guy that showed you not to frown.
Today you made us proud,
Class of 2004 shouts the crowd.
Many doors open for you today,
We realize that you are going the right way.
You made us proud throughout the years,
As we think about it, we burst in tears.
Truly, no words can explain what we feel.
Just know that what we just said is real.
