A Lesson to Learn


A Lesson to Learn

(For Giulia)

By Denise Marsh

The ring

The rhythm 

The sweetness in your voice 

To feel a sense of appreciation 

Because of just being 

For you, are eager to learn.

I am your mentor 

I am your teacher

But you are the reason. 

The gratitude you feel

You manifest it 

With a gentle look

A smile genuine 

informing me 

That you will keep learning 

Because of me.

You are the reason 

You are MY reason 

And this is my lesson to learn.
