Congratulations to Ira and Falls

Two of my awesome friends are graduating high school this year. Ira and Falls. (Sarah) And I couldn't be more proud if I were their real big brother. They are two of the most amazing girls I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They are smart, beautiful and both of them are ladies true. This poem is for you girls. Now go out and conquer the world!

"You're Not Alone" By Carroll Bryant (For Ira and Falls)


Walk down the road of your young life
I will be there in spirit
My words, can you hear it?

Do anything you want
Because you can accomplish
Just be brave and make that wish

Even when you feel so down and out
You want to give up
Or just walk away
But girl you must stop
Take time to here me say

You’re not alone
I’m telling you so
You can smile and you can play
You know I’m here every day you need me
You’re not alone
All you have to do is pick up that phone
And call me when you’re losing the fight
And I’ll tell you if it takes all night
My friend, you’re not alone

When it’s your time
To celebrate the things in your life
Every time you reach a milestone

Clap for yourself once in a while
You’ll feel better just to know
I’m clapping for you

Even when the earth stops moving
You want to pretend
That this is the end
And you can’t help to think you’re losing

You’re not alone
I’m telling you so
You can smile and you can play
You know I’m here every day you need me
You’re not alone
All you have to do is pick up that phone
And call me when you’re losing the fight
And I’ll tell you if it takes all night
My friend, you’re not alone

I’ll gather in the circle
In the center of your attention
You deserve so much credit
For being such a superstar to me
You do so many great things
For so many others that I
Just can’t believe that you would even consider
Wasting your precious time on me

When you’re such a special young lady
Always driving me crazy
But only in a good way

Only in the greatest way of all

You’re not alone
I’m telling you so
You can smile and you can play
You know I’m here every day you need me
You’re not alone
All you have to do is pick up that phone
And call me when you’re losing the fight
And I’ll tell you if it takes all night
My friend, you’re not alone

You’re beautiful
And you’re not alone

You’re not alone
