You held my lil finger and patiently showed me the array of rainbows as I stood in sheer delight;
We stood together on the edge of the cliff, I held your hands fearing I may fall down;
You gently placed your hands on my head, reminding me that you are here for me;
You are the father and mother figures in school and college as I always looked up to you,
bugging you with my troubles;
You patiently listened to me and showed compassion and love;
I feel so loved and blessed, sitting in your company.
As you walked in college dressed in your Kurta Pyjamas and Saree,
I stood in amazement as I looked up to you all as my heroes;
Some are you are friends, some are spiritual fathers and mothers;
How I wish we could go back in time!
Today, I think of the memorable life learning lessons you taught me in class.
You made me who I am today.
How I relish the lesson of life.
Thank you, teachers.
I cannot tell what you have given to me.
Happy Teachers' Day
