To My Teachers
Because I cannot speak yet
It is hard for me to say,
How much I appreciate you
Each and every day.
You feed me, and you change me.
Of course that much is true.
But that is only a small part
Of the wonderful things you do.
You read me funny stories,
And you sing me silly songs.
You hug me, and you kiss me,
And you play with me all day long.
You help me learn to feed myself
And to use a sippy cup.
You encourage me to roll and crawl
And to help myself stand up.
And so this note comes from my heart
And from Mommy and Daddy too,
In giving you a big, big thanks
And saying “We love you!”
