Her Legacy Lives On

by William McKenzie (author's profile)


Her Legacy Lives On

We shall remember
From January through December
No grander lady
Could walk these halls
While walking behind these walls
She came to work to help educate
With the touch of a skilled delegate
She was ever courteous and kind
Showing me to challenge my mind
With gentle words of wisdom, she would cry
Billy, always keep trying.
She cared for all, there's no denying
She pushed me very hard, to do my best
So I would study long, to pass each test
I began to look deep inside myself
What I found, was more than an ounce of worth
So she deserves, my utmost appreciation
For all her constant care and dedication
And though she'll be missed by one and all
Her legacy lives on...
...within these walls.

Thank you,
[words cut off]
