A tribute of Gratitude to one of my Teachers.


Under this sky so blue

Scarlet, pink and purple hues

A day of celebration life a new

I often ponder every step

Loving the people who scarcely wept

Knowing the world would never forget

Breeze blowing soft gently flowing

In the darkest of times knowing

Your love and comfort is glowing

On this day I honor you, your love true

For our God in Heaven, the oceans blue

And all including this simple man that love you

Under the sky this night in honor I kneel

Neither shame nor despair do I feel

Your love shows us how to heal

As I end the day in my heart and soul I say

Thank you my Lord for showing the way

Through love of all to have peace one day

I kneel and bow my head to you

I love you Lord

Thank you
