This poem was written in remembrance to my 1st period English Teacher. Ginger Chadwick. I dedicate this poem to her Parents and Siblings and all who are touched by her...
An Angel. Godbless



My Teacher
I know you are in Heaven,
My teacher shinning bright,
Yet, I can not help but to hurt,
For your remembrance today.
I hear you, in my heart,
Telling me it's all ok,
Yet my tears flow,
For a special teacher like you,
I did not want to go.
I know there comes a time,
When we all must say goodbye.
Yet, I thought it would be,
My graduation day.
You smiling and proud of me.


I know in my heart, you are safe and sound.
Yet as I look around the school,
I know longer see, your eyes shinning bright.
I know what you wanted out of life,
To be a teacher and make a difference,
in our young lives.
You will not be forgotten,
You shall be missed.
BY friends, family, and students.


I am proud to say,
You were my teacher,
and will forever be my guide.
The lessons you shared,
will be cherished forever,
Through out our lives.
I know someday, we shall meet again,
You will be the teacher leading small angels,
and holding their hands.


Until we meet again,
know I'll always remember,
and look up to the teacher,
Who always did understand.
You are forever engraved, upon hearts of many.
You were a work of art, here on earth.
I Know God chose you,
For your Heart, ever so true.
Someday many of us will follow,
Just to meet you, once again.
Until then, we will do the best we can.
Making you proud of the good deeds,
you have shared, with us left here on earth.
While Heaven, has now become your turf.
Holding angels hands,
and sharing lessons of life and love.

What a lovely tribute Kellie. Your words do her proud indeed, Iím so glad you posted this here. I know her father will be thrilled to know how much she touched you. There are many who will miss this wonderful woman, and Iím glad you were able to put into words how much she meant to you.

I wrote this poem after praying. I looked at a piece of paper picked up my pen and moved my hand around on the paper and this is what came out.

In class today we got an assignment back today, of course it was from her class. We were instructed to write a poem that shows something ironic. Now today I feel guilt and sorrow for writing what I wrote. Here it is

Leaving Day
As I get older
You will no longer see
The child inside of me
here I stand in an older land

No don't get older
I can just hear them say those words
I cannot let you go now
to a place not yet known

I know what I am doing
I can see where I am headed
I will be free from harm
and believe me I won't break an arm

you need not anticipate
until you sit and wait
give me a moment
to live, to learn, to love

Kellie, a very warm welcome to Passions from all of us here.  I am so pleased you came here and gave us more insight into the young woman we know through her father, Larry Chadwick.  She must have been a very caring and loving person, and even though you will miss her so, you can write about her here, if you like, and help us to know her better.  Thank you so much for coming here, and joining our warm family.  I am deeply sorry for the loss of such a bright young woman...your teacher, your guide, Ginger Chadwick.
~Hugs, Nancy~

Kellie, you show your love and respect for a vital, young woman that served her purpose well during her lifetime.  I see that you learned from her more than just English, as your love of humanity is evident as is your kindness of heart (I heard she rubbed off on people that way).  I am emailing this to her Dad right at this moment to read, and he said to me earlier this evening, that his afternoon with you all at the school meant more to him that he could even express.  God bless you for your heart, and for this lovely poem I welcome you to Passions as a lovely young poet.

Kellie darling girl this is excellent writing, thank you for showing us a young woman who we didnít know well but someone who we would have liked to know better.

I didnít think I could cry anymore your poem has brought the tears again, I think my heart will always carry them. We only knew Ginger Michelle through her father Larry, but he painted a picture of someone who was as caring and compassionate of heart as she was beautiful of spirit.

Thank you for this wonderful poem, welcome to Passions souls as tender as yours will always be welcome in this hallowed place.

Love and warm stuff
As always
Mushy

Breathe through the heat of our desire
Thy coolness and they balm
Let sense be dumb let flesh retire
Speak through the eathquake wind and fire
Oh

Welcome to the family. Your poem is a truly wonderful tribute to your teacher. We share in your sadness as we do in Ginger's family's sadness. This should inspire us all to tell those that influence our lives that we care about them and appreciate them. Thank you. I hope you will hang around!

Kellie, thank you, for this piece of poetry that shall remain in my heart forever. I did not know your teacher, but feel as if I knew her through her father, Larry, from this poetry board. Your words are so beautiful, as is the heart of Mr. Chadwick. Please, remember your beloved teacher always as a shining light.

I don't think there can be any greater tribute to a person than from the lives of those who were touched by her. You have written a wonderful piece here, miss, and have allowed us to know her better through your eyes. Thank you so much for sharing this with us

I would rather have one breath of his hair,
one kiss of his mouth,
one touch of his hand
than an eternity without it.

Your poem caused me to remember several teachers I had in high school and how much they affected me then and still.  A great bit of writing you've done and for a wonderful teacher.
Thanks for joining us!

Kellie,

=======================
I know someday, we shall meet again,
You will be the teacher leading small angels,
and holding their hands
=======================

You put me into tears again. What an incredible picture that truly touches my heart. I will be at the student organized time of remembrance at the flagpole at 9:10 tomorrow morning.

Thank you so much for sharing with all of us.
