Graduation Wishes and Poem for Son

Sample Graduation Poem for Son:

Class of 2017

To Our Son On Your Graduation

I held him in my arms on the day he was born, and dreamed about his future and the things that he would learn.
Now he stands before me, a handsome young man,
I find myself reluctant to let go of his hand.
But nothing can diminish the pride that’s in my heart,
Least of all the knowledge that it’s time for us to part.
So now I give my only son the space to find his way – 
And celebrate the future on his Graduation Day.

Sample Graduation Wishes for Son:

GRADUATE...
May your day be filled with blessings,
like the sun that lights the sky,
& may you always have the courage
to spread your wings & fly

Love Always,
Mom & Dad
