Every day as I wake up, I pray for a better world
For a life filled with joy and care, and happiness unfurled
Every day as I take small steps, I wish for those bigger differences
And once a day I thank my teachers for bearing my defences
As I look back, I find that teachers have been the mainstay
Let me begin with the best teachers , my parents of course any day
They taught me the basics and cemented my fundamentals
Then of course come the teachers in school, they were just sweet angels
With a stern note and a soft heart, my parents and teachers had their way
Today as I reflect , I am glad they did so, and never let me sway
Who do I speak about , my Math or my History Teacher?
Or about the sweet English teacher who I remember forever
With a perfect balance of understanding and care they doled out discipline
Today I thank all these souls for having created this din.
As I grew older, I became a mother, and learnt not one lesson but many
I confess today, my children are the best teachers, I know it sounds funny
For child is the father of man and it has a lot more to say
In them we see reflections of us, in them we see a better day
Today as I sit back and reflect on all these emotions
I am glad tis Teachers Day, as it brought back past connections.
