I've watched each one of you through the years,
Heard your laughter, seen your tears,
Witnessed your ever changing ways
And traveled through each passing phase.
I've marveled at the heights you've attained.
And the confidence in self you have gained.
I'm proud of the courage through trials you've shown
And the strength of character that has grown.
How can I ever to you impart
The love I hold within my heart?
Thrice blessed --- always, you will be
A source of light and joy to me.
