Teacher - Copyright 1/4/99 by Dan Sharpe.

Your kindness taught me how to give,
your goodness showed me how I want to live.

Your smile introduced me to true beauty,
and your conscience spoke to me of duty.

Your patience gave me time to learn and grow,
you've encouraged me far more than you could know.

Your gentleness taught me how to care,
your thoughtfulness helps me to be fair.

You've taught me more than English, math, or art,
you've given me what's inside your very heart.
