(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.
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.

|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.
