A Unique Graduation Gift
Any graduation creates the perfect opportunity to say
"well done" and "we're proud of you".
(Here's a good example of what can be achieved. Shannon wanted something special for Michael on his Graduation Day. Shannon has kindly given her permission for her poem and
story to be published)
What is your name : Shannon Thomas
Why do you want the poem written: He is graduating from the tennessee state trooper police academy.
Do you have any other comments or thoughts: Michael will be graduating next week from the police academy. Instead of getting his own badge, handcuffs, and shotgun. They will be presenting him with his father's badge, handcuffs, and shotgun. They usually retire trooper's badges, but in this case they are going to give Bucky's to Michael. Now a piece of Bucky really will always be with him wherever he goes. Graduation is going to be a very emotional day for him.
Do you have any last
comments or thoughts: I just wanted to add how important Bucky was to
me. We were very close. He use to always tell me how special I was to him. I
know he was very special to me. I loved him like a father. Also I wanted to
add how huge his funeral possession was. It was over 3 miles long and there
were about 100 police vehicles. At every red light there was a policeman or
state trooper saluting. There was bag pipes at the funeral playing amazing
grace and they had the folding of the flag over his casket. I know famous
people who's funeral wasn't as big as his.
Hi Michael, how are you?
How you doing on this special day?
I’d like to have a chat with you,
because I do have some important words to say.
Firstly, I just wanted to say, “I’m proud of you”
and I know of others, who are even prouder still,
because their love for you will never wane,
it’ll never dim, no, it never will.
Because there’s a light that burns inside of you,
and you can see it glow from your very soul,
just know that Bucky will always be a part of you,
and that together, you’ll be completely whole.
And they usually retire a trooper’s badge,
now a piece of Bucky will be with you wherever you go,
so he’ll be with you on the inside and the out,
and that’s all you’ll ever need to know.
Bucky was very important to me too,
in truth, I loved him like he was my own Dad,
and we both experienced his amazing presence,
so to us both, he was the best father anyone ever had.
Truly, Bucky was a gentle giant,
and his heart was just too big for his chest,
he was a friend to everyone, he never met a stranger,
to be honest, we’ve witnessed God’s very best.
I’ve never seen such a funeral procession as his,
famous people don't get as big a show,
100 police vehicles and a salute at every red light,
if you could choose, that’s the way you’d go.
And I know his end was painful,
but life never goes quietly, without a fight,
but his spirit lives on within you,
Michael, you truly are Bucky’s light.
He was so very proud of you,
and he was proud you kept the trooper tradition going,
that’s why he wanted you to go to the academy,
Bucky knew, he always had a way of knowing.
And I know that he’s with you today,
he’ll be inside you as your chest fills with pride,
because he knows he couldn’t have picked a finer son,
he couldn’t - even if he’d tried.
And now Bucky will be playing with Midnight,
but they’ll both stop to honour you,
because Michael, we all love you very much,
and we’re all very proud of what you do.
And we know Bucky’s light will keep on shining,
because you’ll live up to that badge and then some more,
and I know that Bucky will now rest easy,
as there’s safe and good hands upholding the law.

"Hey Allen! It is wonderful!! I love it...and I know Michael will too. There isn't anything I want to change. It is perfect. Thank you so much! Feel free to put it on your website. You don't have to change any names. I would like the white card and the satin paper. I would also love to have the handwritten draft and have the poem autographed. Thanks again. You did such a wonderful job!"
