To All My Teachers
Hannah writes her gratitude and appreciation to all her teachers on Teacher's Day. Am very much apologetic on my failure to post on Teacher's Day. It could have meant more to Hannah but i am of a belief that there ain't one perfect time to gratify ones teachers;as anytime is the best time. we should be remembering our teachers always, not just a day.
As I sit alone here in this new place and think about you all, I thought of writing to you all. For an instant I felt why I should for I don’t need to explain how much you all mean to me and I always have that gratitude in my heart. But I remembered something quoted by someone, “Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.” So I brought all of you close to my heart and the words sprang out easily.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart and of course I feel it has no bottom for you all.
If John Keats could see the beauty in truth and Octavio Paz in the intelligence of Shahrazade,then I would find my beauty in you and your inspirational works. And I become a poet not to analyze your love and care but to feel, to bring you all close to my heart always. You are as great as or greater than the “lover of words, shaper of thoughts.”
I found guidance, friendship, love, inspiration and discipline in you all. You instilled hope against hope in me when I was really in need of it. My words are not like a message written on the sand by the beach which vanishes as the waves swallows it, to oblivion mere sands to the belly of ocean deep; but it is sculpted on my heart and reflected on my soul. I am who I am because of you all. I was and am fortunate to have the teachers like you all. Thank you once again for your positive influence, for your endurance and for being the touchstone to my dreams.
You all are always my inspiration and hope. I love You my Teachers.
