Graduation Day!

To my son, Zarif, who has just graduated from high school, a graduation poem:

Graduation Day is the climax of a dream.
A parental dream that began when a child is born,
And their hope come true it would seem,
A triumph held after periods of forlorn,
A feeling of pride and euphoria years away
For a daughter or son - Graduation Day.

It is a peak of success for the graduate,
Not only for the graduate but parents too.
A joyful event after many years they had to wait,
Realizing the glorious thrill of a dream come true,
A genuine smile accompanied by a deep sigh,
Often a handkerchief in hand as the class goes by.
Graduation is a deserving, hard earned goal
With mortarboard and gown as foretold,
A gratifying service of the mind and soul

In a simple and beautiful sheepskin told
That the graduate fulfilled the educational rule.
At last, for the mother and father,
a dream come true.

Graduation Day!
Joseph T. Renaldi

The above special cake was for Zarif on his Graduation Day 06112009, to be shared with his friends. He will be sitting for his SPM examination starting tomorrow. Wish you best of luck, my dear! My prayers are always with you....
