“The world is a better place…” – a poem

This is a poem I wrote for our beautiful teachers last year. I formatted it, used an appropriate background and farmed it. It was an inexpensive but heartwarming way, I hope, to thank them. We are very fortunate to have such a loving and dedicated family of teachers/staff at the elementary school my girls attend. Really blessed.

Just thought I’d include it in my nook here at WP. Hope you like it.

******************************

Your guidance cradles me softly through life’s voyage.
The ride is sweeter with the shades of your wisdom.
Your smile gives me courage and lulls my heart.

The world is a better place.

Your quiet way of loving me gives me wings.
The ride is bumpy but you provide cushion.
Your words provide clarity within my labyrinth.

The world is a better place.

Your hands illustrate exemplary ways and I become stronger.
The ride is fast but you engrave it in the walls of my mind.
Your existence nourishes my soul providing me long life support.

The world is a better place… with you in it!

  1. We are so fortunate to have amazing teachers and supportive school environments for both our kids. This poem is a lovely summation of what it means as a parent to know our children are being shaped and guided by wonderful people – a fitting tribute Mel.

      1. Yep – all recovered thanks and fought down the urge to go running over the weekend to get in some proper rest! Will post on my story / writing blog first I suspect…I think my next post is number 200 🙂
