The kind of challenges you'd make me face.
You gave me motivation to pursue
The best, and to reject the commonplace.
With wisdom, style and grace, you made me see,
That what I'd choose to seek, I'd surely find;
You shook me out of my complacency.
What you have taught me I will not outgrow.
Your kind attention touched my mind and heart;
In many ways that you will never know.
I wish that all my teachers were like you.
