For a Teacher

my mother taught me to dream
my mother taught me to breathe
my mother taught me to love, to see
to want and to need
my mother taught me to be

my mother taught me to learn
my mother taught me to swim
my mother taught me to give, to take
to listen and to make mistakes
my mother taught me to grow

my mother taught me to change
my mother taught me to hold
my mother taught me to share, to care
and to age without growing old
my mother taught me patience

my mother taught me to know
my mother taught me to reach
my mother taught me to wish, to seek
to stand up and to speak
my mother taught me to please

my mother taught me to read
my mother taught me to write
my mother taught me to give hope, to have hope
to keep close and to let go
my mother taught me to believe

my mother taught me to dream
my mother taught me to breath
my mother taught me to love, to see
to want and to need
my mother taught me to be
