Subject: Poem wanted for Grandson's Graduation album
I am putting the finishing touches on a picture album for my Grandson's High School Graduation celebration that will be this Sunday. This is a book of his school pictures from Kindergarten to Graduation.
I would like a poem for this album to be about from Kindergarten to Graduation. Something about the future ahead of hopes, wishes, dreams...etc...etc... This poem wil be the first page when he opens the album.
His name is Zac, He started school in 1994 and he graduated from South High School in 2007. He starts college in August.
I appreciate the help of any of our great poets...if you need anymore information please let me know.
Thanks in advance so much.

Hi Sondra Congratulations to your Grandson and best wishes to you and all the family, I hope this will work, if there is anything you need to change, please let me know.
Zac, as through these pages
Your eyes will gaze
Your mind will drift back
To growing days...
Through years of learning and fun,
Faces of new friends and old,
Hard work and success
As these pages unfold.
As you graduate today
We are so proud of you.
From a boy to a man
We saw how you grew.
Now look to the future
Be proud of who you are
You can make something of yourself
Now you have come this far!
Enjoy this wonderful journey
Of hopes and wishes come true
Dream right into the future
This day belongs to you.
May this album be the beginning
Of a future yet untold,
One that with God's help
Will prove to be of gold!

Doreen, your poem is absolutely great! I see it took you less that one hour to compose it, too. Wow! You could have worked for a card company writing neat thoughts. You missed your calling, I guess. Nice job! Glad you are here to share your outstanding talent with us.

Thanks Karen, yes of course you may use it. I am trusting you will keep my name with it, thanks. Congrats to your son too and enjoy the graduation.
Gosh Shirttails thanks for your lovely comments, I have written hundreds of poems, many of them are in the archives here too. I have my own collection which I am hoping to publish one day - wish me luck finding a publisher. I am always glad to help out whenever I can and I am glad craftsayings gives me the opportunity to write more.
I hope Sondra will enjoy this poem.
Blessings to you all,

I'm just now getting back to checking my post. I've had so much to do to get this celebration together.
Doreen..the poem is just beautiful and will work perfectly.
You do have a God given talent and you share it so freely.
I really appreciate you and all the other poets here on the Voy board. I wouldn't be able to do all the things I do without all the beautiful poems that you write and share.
Every one of you is appreciated very much.
