When you think back to days
Long gone, in their haze
Do you think of all the ways
Your life impacted others somehow?
Do you look into the faces
And see the hopeful traces
Of love and learning in the spaces
Between the distant then and now?
Some of those sweet smiles
Transcend the time and miles-
They “friend” their teacher while
She clicks the happy “Allow.”
Today I reach out in love
With Facebook’s help and God above
Smiling down like a cooing dove
Singing “I’ll love you forever!” (That’s my vow)
God bless all my former students –
What a privilege it was to walk with you
Through learning and growing –
And live to this age knowing
You remember me, too.
Just love one another… and let that lesson live on the longest…
What teachers do you remember fondly?
See you tomorrow!
