Setaluri Padmavathi


The Greatest Gift - Poem by Setaluri Padmavathi

I sit and look back to how well I can remember you
You’ve lived and let me watch you do it through
Each and every day you were helping me grow up
You enlightened me and guided me to come up.

You taught me love and fear during my childhood
And made me face malignant situations with bravery
Throughout my educational field you were a disciplinarian
You made me meticulous and methodical to be a good civilian.

I followed you to acquire excellent and suitable qualities
You inspired me to strive hard to have many opportunities
Throughout my professional life you were my master
You enabled me feel that you’re more than a hundred teachers.

Your wisdom and strength are my existent wealth
Your guidance and admiration are my fortune
You came from God; I call you Dad
Oh, Father! You’re the greatest gift I ever had!
