O my own teachers I’ll say with love

you changed who I am in the world.

You nurtured the thoughts of a young man,

when I thought I was just a boy.

Thank you for being there

at times when skies were gray.

Thank you, for lending an ear

When I had things to say.

You showered love on me lavishly

when no one seemed to care.

You brought me joys untold,

to fill my heart with moments of gold.

I would have felt isolated and lonely,

if you had not been there,

I lack the words to let you know

how much you mean to me.

But I will profusely thank god for you

until the eternity.

Thank you for being my life’s role model.

When I consider all you have taught me

and reflect on the kind of person you are,

I want to be like you-

smart, interesting and engaging,

positive, confident, yet unpretentious.

I want to be like you-

well-informed and easy to understand,

thinking with your heart as well as your head,

gently nudging us to do our best,

with sensitivity and insight.

I want to be like you-

giving your time, energy and talent

to ensure the brightest possible future

for each of us.

Thank You.

For giving me a goal to shoot for.

I want to be like you…
