Tonight We Celebrate

Jack's Graduation

Tonight we celebrate

No worries for tomorrow

No regret for yesterday

We are present in this moment

Hand in hand, sharing the same smile

Accomplishments measured

by so much more than a slip of paper

Marked by years of struggle

Baptized in a fair share of tears

Punctuated by each small victory along the way

Tonight we celebrate

Our joy echoed as the band plays on

Our pride, the guest of honor

We are present in this moment

Eye to eye, sharing the same dream

A new beginning dawns

as this moment signifies a fresh perspective

Marked by rules of your own creation

Baptized in a collective hope for the future

Punctuated by each next step on this new journey

A sonโ€™s relief

A motherโ€™s vindication

No worries for tomorrow

No regret for yesterday

Tonight we celebrate
