In this folder there’s a picture
From my high school graduation
With a program, mint condition
And a star beside my name
Here’s a picture of my parents

And our lives are in these boxes
While the woman who held us is gone
But we go on, we grow
So hold tight, Abuela, if you’re up there
I’ll make you proud of everything I know
Thank you, for everything I know

*lyrics from In The Heights
