Graduation Is a Time

Music: Chi Vuol Veder.
By Claudio Monteverdi. Sequenced by M.J. Starke.

Graduation is a time
For feeling very proud,
For thinking lots of lovely thoughts
And saying them out loud.

It's a time for feeling love
About to overflow,
And just before it leaps its banks,
To let the loved one know.

And so I'm very proud of you
For being who you are,
For making something of yourself,
For making it this far.

I'm proud because I am a part
Of everything you do.
This time's the time to say how much
In love I am with you.

(Note: Parents can simply change "I" to "we," and change the last line to, "Love we have for you.")
