Today isn`t special. Anyway, is as good as any other day to begin a project. I thought about it for some weeks. The real truth was that sometimes we need to be a little bit pushed (in a good way). Yet I think i am doing the right thing! So, if now I am beginning with this "enterprise", I owe it to myself. Finally I also want to thank Mónica for her encouragement and for being such an available person always ready to help me with this new beginning.
Thanks tou you all: coleagues and children i work with!!
(some new posts will come soon)

Thank You

by Rose

You took me in under your wings
When I was too scared to fly
You told me that I had to live
When all I wanted was to die

You saw the fear and sadness I had
By only the sound of my voice
You said I didn't have to talk-
You were the first to give me that choice

You told me just to take my time
We'll always have next week
There were many, many times
When you'd just let me weep

You somehow made me smile, though
Through my pain and all the tears
You told me all about my life
And what happened in those years

To my surprise you were right
You already knew me so well
So I decided to stick with you
"I like her already, I can tell. "

You opened my heart very slow
And took a look inside
Then you found the part of me
That I wanted so badly to hide

But you didn't laugh, nor did you leave
You didn't say I was wrong
You told me that I'd be fine -
Something I'd needed so long


Then I realized something was wrong

When I sat there all those days
Then I finally figured it out
It was something I didn't say.


Thank you was all that I could get out
Though I wanted to say much more
You have taught me of life and love
And that I have something to live for.

  1. Nice words and nice poem Graça!
    Beeing a teacher is not an easy task. We have to teach, to educate, to listen, to understand, to love, to punish..... and we do it all, day after day, because we love what we do... it's one of the things "we live for" ;)
    You are doing a great job :)
    Take care,
