For My New Class


A poem for my new class

This is a new year for you.
This is your time to be true.
It is a fresh new start
so give it all your heart.

I am so proud of you already.
I know that you will hold steady.
But should you forget and feel blue,
know that I am here to cheer for you.

As you read these words of care,
remember that I will always be there.
Reach for the sky 
and you will learn to fly.
