An Education... What I've learned (poetry dedicated to a great cause)

Updated on October 10, 2014
Ours to brighten each day for a child.
Ours to brighten each day for a child.
A new day for every child
A new day for every child
Children grow as flowers, delicate and mild.
Children grow as flowers, delicate and mild.
Evert child should rest in their sleep, never to be harmed and to feel secure.
Evert child should rest in their sleep, never to be harmed and to feel secure.
As darkness comes a child should have happy dreams.
As darkness comes a child should have happy dreams.
Awaiting the morning's light
Awaiting the morning's light
Each new day so special for a child to see.
Each new day so special for a child to see.
Though every child may be different in abilities, each is very special within their heart.
Though every child may be different in abilities, each is very special within their heart.
At the end of the day, we will have done our best in helping children.
At the end of the day, we will have done our best in helping children.
Every child is brilliant in their capabilities.
Every child is brilliant in their capabilities.




As a teacher of children, those in need,

All the finest years that I have spent,

A special education, for me, was found,

In what I'd learned, and what it's meant.


Each child, so different in their needs,

Some slower, than others, in how each reads.

A teacher's job, to prepare and inspire,

Taking much care in how each leads.


Every child, has a better way to learn,

To be seen as "normal", each to yearn.

Stronger, are some, in how they hear,

Others learn best, in books held near.


Visual needs, or as auditory, is addressed,

As each child tries hard to do their best.

Kinesthetic, or the tactile, about the touch,

All attempts to learn, to mean so much.


A precious child has wants and needs,

It's up to teachers, to plant good seeds.

Their greatest need for each one to seek,

To feel self worth, and as no life, too bleak.


Self esteem, does mean so very much,

In every child's life, that we may touch,

The support and praise that we may give,

Inspires our children in just how to live.


Children served, just as fond plants, grow tall,

And in our special garden, we meet the call.

Use of verbal and written communication for all,

Help those in need, those big and small.


As we aid in their speech of those we teach,

We do our best, to help, for these to reach.

Every little one's life, so important to us, each,

To meet their needs, to succeed, ours to preach.


A teacher's job, a challenge we may never fulfill,

Yet our goal in attending school, to them, a thrill

The love of learning, and to spell a new word,

To add and subtract, then answer what is heard.


The feeling each one gets, as they too, belong,

That happy smile, singing a brand new song,

School is like a family, for every single child,

As daily they attend, we greet them with a smile.

A special life for a special child.
A special life for a special child.

      Parents and teachers should work together to bring every child the opportunity to be the best they can be. Children are little sponges who love to learn and take pride in their accomplishments. We all need to pave their way so they can eventually travel this life on their own.

      Beautiful piece, whonu!
