About the Poem
My daughter, Candice, told me she submitted her poem to me here. So I thought I would do the same for her.
This is a poem of encouragement, love, and pride. I wrote it for, and gave to my daughter for her 8th grade graduation. It was also a time when life's road was a bit bumpy and money was a bit on the short side.
Candice, I love you more than you'll ever know
Candice's Graduation Poem
|by Lisa Winn
|Candice, You Are Unique,
you're special through & through.
And, as time did tell, you've done so well
I'm so Very Proud Of You.
When you were born,
you were helpless and small.
But, even then I knew,
that deep inside you had the strength,
to always see you through.
You have courage, and pride
that you just can't hide,
and, an incredible strong will too.
It's all of these things together, combined,
that are The Strength In You.
So walk through life
with your head held high,
and remember to always be,
True To Yourself, Be Kind and Help
like the person I've taught you to be.
And always remember
for I know that,
You Do Listen To Me.
I know it because it's written all over,
the Report Cards that I see.
So here's your Graduation gift
in the form of an . . . I Owe You.
To spend the day, just your way, on
A shopping Spree For Two!
