My Graduation Day Thankyou
Today as I graduate
Please don't cheer for me alone,
There are so many I must honor
For I couldn't arrive here on my own.
Thankyou to my precious family
For your prayerful support,
The nurture given all my days
As my best you gladly sought.
Thankyou to my special friends
For your friendship, care and fun,
All the great times we have shared
Are we almost sad this day has come.
Thankyou to my tutors
For the wisdom shown every day to me,
Teaching me, not just academics
But how character should be.
So, as I stand up now to graduate
You all share in this honor today,
And from my heart I gratefully say
May God give you all,
The worlds most beautiful bouquet.
