I have sadly, had the task of writing many a eulogy, but they are always laced in love, and tribute, for the touches of inspiration, offered to me....your farewell is a wonderful wave goodbye...enjoyed it immensely. I would like to invite you to read my submitted poetry, as I am new to this forum, and value all critiques. PEACE

I only just found this. Seems strange I choose the same title for a poem of mine I'm not sure it is a good as this however. Great teachers are the hardest to find one and when you do you should treasure him/her as you have done here.

'As always' you are fragrant fresh In your epitaph for your teacher 'Till soon', In gratitude it is deeply drenched For lasting peace the flowerbed blooms. Ever a friend, CP
