(My cousin) Tami's son Jeffrey graduated last night with honors and is headed to University. We are so proud of him. Tami wrote this, lets show some love.

For Jeffrey

How will I begin to make it without you

You are my strength in the midst of the storm

I loved you so, since the day you were born

My God gave me a gift that come to so few

The moment he gave me the beauty of you

I cannot begin to explain the joy you have brought

When all the times I thought there was nought

Not one time have you let me down

And you refused to leave me with a frown

You always gave me your best

Even when God put our will to the test

It was you my son that kept me knowing

With your wisdom and knowledge we must keep going

You would say to me "Mom, my Dear"

Remember the Lord tells us not to fear

Never a doubt once came to your mind

That with God's help, an answer we'd not find

Now I let you go my son, my friend

To find yourself, and to lend

Your hand to the next one God sends your way

To give them the courage that I found today.

2008 Tami McGregor

A very moving poem that so many people can relate to. I found myself nodding in recognition. Thank you for this experience.

It is hard to let go, to let the bird fly from the nest, but always worth it. You must be very proud and it shows in the poem.
