Just want you to know how proud we are of you,
How much your graduation means to us.
Most people finish high school now, it's true,
But sometimes we just like to make a fuss.
Years ago, when we fought every day,
When we were merely siblings, not yet friends,
Such talk might make us kick up our heels and bray
Like donkeys as some silly love scene ends.
But now the love we've always felt has come
Into its own, and so we feel your pride
In all the things you've managed to get done
Without your loyal siblings at your side.
Enjoy the day and bask in its bright sun.
The honor's yours, but we'll all share the fun.
