a teacher's prayer...

i want to teach
my students more
than lesson in a book

i want to teach them
deeper things
that people overlook

the value of
a rose in a bloom
its use and beauty too

a sense of curiosity
to discover
what is true

how to think
and how to choose
the right above the wrong

how to live and learn each day
and grow up to be strong

to teach them always
how to gain
in wisdom and grace

so they will someday
make the world
a brighter better place

God, let me be
a friend
and guide to give these mind
a start

upon their way,
down life's long road,
then i'll have done
my part
