You Touched My Inner Soul

The clarity you gave to me,
It shone like angel rays,
Like water rushed on golden sands,
And crashed along the bays.

The questions deep within my heart
Confused my humble mind,
Yet when you spoke your words aloud
It seemed, no longer I was blind.

The answers all came flooding in,
They touched my inner soul,
The knowledge that you gave to me
Within my heart I hold.

I understood that the events
That troubled me somehow,
Was nothing to be frightened of,
Instead I should be proud.

I thank you sir most graciously,
These words I say aloud,
For the clarity you've given me,
Has made me feel quite proud.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful poem. I did not have the exact words for my feeling towards my students, but you did. I posted it as my goodbye announcement with pride. I hope everyone come to this site and reads more of your poems. The sourcing on the bottom of the poem will be a great link for them and myself in the future.
