For my Students upon Graduation


Your faces I have known.

In dusty mirrors you have shown,

What was, what is, what could be,

The best and worst of humanity.

Rolling, crawling, standing up,

You sip your time from the cup.

You walk, you run, you have your fun.

You spend your life in the sun.

But evening comes like a thief.

You look back, your time was brief.

What felt so long, is here and gone

Yielding now to approaching dawn.

Cherish the lessons becoming past,

Both good and bad, make them last

But at first light take the step.

Be bold, be brave, leave no regrets.
