The valley is wide
but there is no divide.
We are one and soon
you’ll walk across the stage and hear, “well done”.
With your degree in hand
you head to new land,
to yet again explore, knocking on new doors.
That welcomes you into your rightful place
but don’t lose your pace, make haste.
Remember your teaching, where the
valley has led you.
Remember those who walked through the valley
along side you.
