My world came crashing down today
I know not what to do.
Our work has placed a trust
between us daily, as it grew.
You'll never know what you have meant
you've groomed me to be you.
I've learned in time, just what you want,
and now to start anew?
You've shown me how to take the steps
to climb up to the top.
And now I feel them tumbling down
Please can't you make it stop?
You are my mentor and my friend,
you've pushed me all the way.
Without your faith and guidance,
I'd have simply washed away.
I can't imagine life without
your knowledge and your lead.
it's not just work, you are my friend,
supporting all my needs.
I'll hope and pray you find your way,
and make it once again.
I'll reach our goals, and prove to them,
the knowledge you have trained.
