A Mother's Passion in Teaching
The alarm clock rings at 4:00am each morning, She pulls her bible and reads for 30 minutes, She kneels down to pray for another 30 minutes, She prays for all her children and her students, She prays for the Lord for His knowledge To guide her to teach the students, With love and happiness, For the past 35 years. She then gives water to the plants and vegestables around her house, She feeds the chickens, She does the dishes and prepares breakfast, She prepares her teaching notes in between chores. With love and happiness, For the past 35 years. She wakes her children for breakfast, She sends them off to school, She prepares herself and leaves the house, She is greeted by her students, She is happy now to see them, With love and happiness, For the past 35 years. She finds shade and spreads the mat for her students to sit, She uses an old board to write with a chalk, Each student opens their book and write, She explains to them, They understand her, They are happy that they learn something that day, She leaves satisfied that she thought them well that day, With love and happiness, For the past 35 years. This poem is dedicated to my mother "With Love".
