The Old Woman Of The School... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

she believes in you
and that was the most important thing that happens
to the life
of the student...

the old teacher
who had taught you well how to speak English
and write a story using
that language...

the importance of feelings
and how you made the other people feel

she had made you competitive
and ambitious not forgetting the
value of

poetry and the humanity that lies
embedded in the great
literary works
of the masters

she gave you wings which remained
invisible
she created you a world
which you only know and where you still live
with dignity and pride

when she died
you recited an eulogy which could have narrated
the best about her
when she was alive and so inspiring

but your tears and sobs
did speak for her more
and those who attended the funeral
understood so well.
