Standing in formation,
My heart, racing as I stare.
Double doors open like flood gates,
I am hit. A tidal wave of emotion.
I see you,
the sea of people.
Your smiling face, my beacon.
Guiding me to your warm embrace,
A tight, loving hug,
A tender kiss.

You choke back tears in your eyes
And tell me how proud you are.
I am exuberant in the moment.
