You needed me…

To all teachers and teachers-to-be…

You are...

I cried a tear; you wiped it dry
I was confused; you cleared my mind
I sold my soul; you bought it back for me
And helped me up and gave me dignity
Somehow, you needed me

You gave me strength to stand alone again
To face the world out on my own again
You put me high upon a pedestal
So high that I could almost see eternity
You needed me
You needed me

And I can’t believe it’s you
I can’t believe it’s true
I needed you and you were there
And I’d never leave
Why should I leave
I’d be a fool
when I’ve finally found someone who really cares

You held my hand when it was cold
When I was lost, you took me home
You gave me love when I was at the end
And turned my lies back into truth again
You even called me friend…

You needed me…
