TEACHER- VITAL IN MY LIFE


TEACHER- VITAL IN MY LIFE

Classroom was a magical place
Where I have had the finest gifted teachers of life
When each morning bust, I woke up with a smile
Excitedly waiting to see my teacher’s visage.

I have had golden opportunities of life
To be in your brilliant hands
Heart full of love and compassion.
Understanding, appreciative and comprehensive.

You rooted and sprouted the foundation in me
You stood like the shade of a banyan tree above me
You enlightened words of wisdom and truth
You piloted me through the precise pathway of life.

You enabled me to recognize my talents that were buried
You helped me showcase the same to the outside world
You awakened the wishes in me and caused it to be a marvel to many.

You refined me like gold in a furnace
You gave too much, though you could not shoulder
Yet, you did not let me fall,
You held my hands and taught me right from wrong.

You scolded me, though I despised that
Today I feel blessed for all that you have done
You have helped me be stronger and bolder in life
Preparing me for the future,
I believe role of a teacher is still vital in my life.
I love you my teacher.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
