A cap, a gown, an honor stole.
My friends’ daughter is graduating.
I still remember the day they brought her home.
I was grateful to help, more than they may ever know.
Ten fingers, ten toes, and a full head of hair.
It seems like it was yesterday.
I’ve watched her grow up, mostly from afar.
Where has the time gone? When did she grow up?
She’s off to college in the fall…What?!
She can’t, she’s just a little kid!
…Amazing how time flies…
