Thank you, Teacher

Teachers all on knowledge dine
And they unlock their students' minds.
So they can reach the path divine
We really are a special kind.

We are mentors that push student's yearning
We teach them how to read.
Then they can always read for learning.
We really are a special breed.

We are like shepherds guiding sheep
Showing them how to take the right path.
Without our nurture, they would sadly creep
Through all the world unending wrath.

Yes, teachers, turn the pages
Of many wonderful books.
Our training reaches down through the ages
We teach our pupils for knowledge to look.

Thank you, dear teacher, 
For all you have done.
In a world of so many
You are a special one.
