You look at me with longing eyes,
As I still remember
All too well,
Being filled with such need.
You look to me for answers,
As I look to you for questions.
This dance of ours, student and teacher,
Timeless and essential,
Overflowing with potential and promise
Within a maze of rigor and expectations,
And a privilege to behold!
If you knew what I know,
And I knew what you know,
How much we’d learn
From each other
About such matters
Not found in books.
Together we set sail
On a journey of a lifetime
Striving for goals sewn by limitless wonder.
Through waves of abounding challenge and discovery,
You teach me more than you will ever realize.
