Life Poems

Graduation Day

by Ellen Bailey

Today is my graduation day
My school years have all passed away
I will tell my old friends goodbye
I am happy but still I cry

I stand arrayed in my cap and gown
I wear a smile instead of a frown
I walk forward with a confident stride
I receive my diploma with youthful pride

I will miss my teachers and my school
And all those who helped me through
My wandering thoughts of by-gone years
Turn now to the future and a career
