dusted off this classic for my buddy Tony’s 8th grade graduation. Con”grad”ulations!
The Crowning Glory
Mountains have stood before us,
valleys have kept us apart.
But nothing could block our way,
because when we were together we had heart.
From many diverse routes we came.
On this united journey, no one knew the way.
Though the road we shared twisted and turned,
nothing could keep us from this day.
The crowning glory of years of hard work
lies just beyond this door.
And with memories and lessons learned,
we face the best that life has in store.
