A phrase I often hear.
All too quickly the years have passed,
As Iíve endeavored to give my best
In teaching my students year after year
And in fulfilling my lifelong quest.
Dreams and memories shall remain
Part of my lifeís great treasure.
The love and friendships I have gained
Are so abundant beyond measure.
As I depart and bid farewell
To everyone Iíve known here.
A part of me shall always stay
In this school that I hold so dear.
But life must go ever onward
And precious though they seem,
The dreams of the past now must serve
To build my future dream.
So now I face a future -
That is part of the Plan.
May my lifeís work be a legacy
For the betterment of Man.
And may I search for a purpose
In lifeís mystery and scheme,
As I continue with my mission
To help others gain their dream.
