Graduation Day

It seems like only yesterday
Or perhaps the day before
You were watching Barney
With your blanket on the floor
Then baby dolls and Barbie dolls
And play doh on my dishes
Piggy tails and kool aid stains
And endless goodnight kisses
Then came your first day of school
Followed by your first best friend
Your first fight, first crush, first date
First bro ken heart to mend.
Cheerleading practice, softball games
New school, new friends, new teams
Fashion statements, birthday parties
And suddenly you’re sixteen.
As the days filled up with memories
The years flew by too fast
With photo albums and videos
We captured moments as they passed.
And now on your Graduation Day
As you walk across that stage
Another milestone is created
on this chapter’s final page
And though I’m just one single mom
In this enormous happy crowd
I hope you somehow understand
There’s no other here as proud.
