Poopy diapers and rolling overs
The piggly wiggly’s and ogar toes;
Crawling to stumbling and walking shortly
Then eating sand while tumbling in the waves…
Learning to talk, read, and write
To coloring, drawing, and creating.
Soon came new teachers
New people, new friends;
Years after years,
Promises slowly broken.
I drifted more and more
Yet you never swayed;
You didn’t take a step,
Not a shimmy or a thought away.
Soon it hit me,
I better run your way;
But before I recovered you
You left me standing here to pray.
Pray for your soul, your heart, your mind
I hope you found peace and a place to stay;
I don’t know where you might be
I hope not too far.
I need you here, right now, and forever
You were my Teacher, you're now my Angel
I know you’ll never leave my side.
