Inspirational Thank You Poem To Teacher

This poem relates to my journey alongside my dance teacher, who was also my best friend, who is the best teacher I have ever known. She was like a sister to me and there is not one day that I don't miss her as she recently passed away. I was always taught by her and the only time I wasn't under her tuition was my time at university, training to become a dance teacher just like her.

The Teacher

Remember when we met?
When I was just a kid.
And you said to me,
''It's okay, we're all friends here.''
And treated me like a normal kid?
Well even if you don't,
Thank you, as you now mean the world to me.

Remember when I first cried in front of you?
When times were tough for me.
And you said to me,
''It's okay, I'm here.''
And it all seemed a little better?
Well even if it's slipped your mind,
It made me who I am today.

Remember when you fell apart?
You couldn't cope without your Dad.
And I said to you,
''It's okay, I'm her for you.''
And you put back up your mask?
Because it had slipped that day and I saw,
The real you, scared and hiding.

Remember when I left you?
To move on to my next stage.
And you said to me,
''I'll always be here for you.''
And we hugged and talked for hours?
You wanted me to chase my dreams,
And helped me through my fear.

Remember when I became you?
And you took to the sidelines.
And I said to you,
''I'm here to carry on.''
And you watched like a proud parent,
As I took my first steps?

Now it's me remembering you,
As you lie in the ground.
I'll always remember your calming voice,
And be grateful for what I found.
