You shine in the abyss,
A beckoning brightness beaming
Forth with advice and encouragement.
You pull me aside after class
And softly, subtly, smilingly
Encourage me to seek an accelerated Master's.
You recognize the unrealized potential within
Me, a shining shimmering success
That could be unleashed for all to witness.
Your guidance bolsters me: I am a
Bright, burning, blinding, streak
Rattling towards the heavens.
