You Made Me

My dear teacher
Your strictness
Never bothered me
It set me straight.

All my feelings
I had to express to you
Before they boiled in me
And blew me out.

Your unlimited knowledge
Provided me with
The guidance I needed
When I was with you.

Your extraordinary patience
And thoughtful transfer of wisdom
Always helped me acquire
All that I had to.

You made me what I am
I just added a little here
And a little there to deliver
To others what I learned.
