A Tribute To My Teacher.

by TheBFactor

When I first stepped into school,
I knew nothing; young and foolish I had been,
Then there it was, a bright light shining upon me like the beaming rays of sunshine,
The light which illuminated,
Illuminated my prism of life,
Revealing to me a rainbow of great possibilities.

Every step I took, I hesitated,
Only to have had you push me forward,
Out on top, right at the front,
Your lessons enriched my brain,
Your cares overwhelmed my heart.

If I hadn't had you as my teacher,
I wouldn't have known,
How much fun you'd make learning,
And the effort you'd put in, to show me,
Lessons hard to comprehend,
Satisfying to the brain and heart,
Filling me with essential knowledge.

Whether inside or outside the classroom,
Your teachings would always be beside me,
Helping me tackle obstacles,
Fighting through thorns,
And blossoming amongst others like the first flowers of spring.

For it was your dedication and guidance,
That had given me the wings by which I could fly,
Your diligence is what made me who I am today.

Knowing you has been a privilege,
One I'd lock in heavy metal chains,
Throw away the keys in a bottomless pit,
And selfishly have all of it to myself.

So one day, all of this will pay off,
No one might know,
But you'll always be there,
Etched in my memory forever,
For all the time you spent upon me,
All the sacrifices you made for me.

Forgive me if I disappoint you,
But don't ever forget me,
Well Thank You for your caring,
And lots of other stuff,
For every thing you gave me,
I just can't thank you enough.
