Thank you, Teacher!


Print
I was such a naive girl
Happy in my shell, just like a pearl.
Not concerned about the world
And the people it had,
All I cared for were a bunch of friends
Who in the end made me sad!

There came teachers in my life
Just like they come in everyone else’s life
But the way they shaped my mind, and guided me through
I doubt anyone has found a teacher like you!

I was a loser lying on the ground
You picked me up and changed my life upside down.
I failed and experienced failure
But you said that’s the law of nature!

You were the reason behind my burning the midnight lamp
All I wanted was to become your champ!
Your motivation, your confidence,
Your faith and your support,
The punishment as well as the treats,
Oh, to express it all, the words fall short!

You were my mentor in every sense
It was all for you, my interest in the subjects became so intense!
You shaped my character
And made me a person worthy for the world
Taught me some great values of life
And prepared me for life that was going to get unfurled!


You were that light in the dark
Flickering brightly and brought my spark
You showed me the paths I’d never dare to choose
With you behind me, I could never make an excuse!
You pushed me beyond the limits I could ever imagine
Unleashed the new me and made me proud of my skin!

I can never thank you enough for what you have given me
Becoming worthy is the gift I want to give and see you in glee!
What you gave me, I want to take it forward
Making differences in lives will be my reward!

I am trying to take my rank to the next level with Blogchatter.

Cheers

Geets

  14. This is what I want to say to a particular teacher of mine. He is responsible for shaping my future in so many way. I owe all that I am to him. I wish he knows how grateful I am and always will be that he taught me, not just English and Social Sciences but to be my own person and accept myself and take every change in my stride.
