Mother and Son

Family & Memories

Up there on the stage,

you in cap and gown.

I couldn't hold back the tears,

I couldn't help the frown.

My heart was filled with love,

and it overflowed with pride.

I found it hard to contain,

all the joy I had inside.

When your name was called,

and you took your diploma in your hand.

I felt my heart just break a bit,

for my little boy became a man.

The graduating class then stood,

your caps flew in the air.

Laughter and screams rose among the group,

like none of you had a care!

I watched you son, with such delight,

and I felt such a devotion.

See, a Mother's love for her child,

is the strongest of emotions!
