I lie in bed; stare up at the ceiling,
I reach out for my phone, “is it time yet?”
A groan escapes, I can’t get back to sleep,
not today, today I’ll never forget!
I wrap up tight in my thick, fluffy throw,
stare out the window at white fluffy snow.
Bright and early I get to the hotel,
meet Family and drink champagne at dawn.
Glam up for a momentous occasion,
celebrate three years, that have come and gone.
At University I wait in line,
excited, waiting for my time to shine.
A long black robe draped over my shoulders
and a special black hat pinned to my hair.
Twirl for the family, emotions high
as we smile for the cameras everywhere.
I feel lost in the crowd of graduates,
I sit and wait to hear my name declared.
I pray that my high heels won’t betray me
see me topple over, so unprepared.
But here I go, waltzing across the stage
and with the chancellor I do engage.
I’m here! I’ve graduated! I did it!
A day I will forever remember!
I love having my family here with me
to commemorate such an adventure.
