MY TEACHER


One day I met an angel
She was wearing an elegant smile
Seemed so known though a stranger
She did something to the heart fragile.
She walked in so calmly, right
Stayed and then never left my sight
Taught me not a lesson
Instead gave me a learner's vision.
Her lips prayed for one and all
Never ignored our call
As we were children of her own
We tried to achieve and as if she won.
Grace in her cadenced walking
When she carried away our worries
Her actions, her talking
Will always remain our memories.
She taught to love by Loving
To teach by teaching
To learn by learning
& to let live by let living.
That angel is still besides
& at every turn she is a guide
In our heart she resides
& I promise I'll keep her pride.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
