Not so long ago, when we were still kids,
You told us to do our best, and that's what we did.
Though it probably wasn't enough,
You still loved us just as much.
Through the years we've learnt, through you,
What makes us the people we are and what we do.
And now that we're all grown up, no longer kids,
Don't think we won't need you, like we always did.
You'll always be our mentors, our guides,
From whom we learned never to hide,
But to stand up victorious against the odds and say,
"All we did was love and pray."
