Like a lit- candle replaces darkness with light,
You replaced ignorance with education.
Like a ladder enables to climb great heights,
You enabled me to climb& yet you stay in the same place.
Like a tree that gives shade,
You gave me protection at all times.
Like a flower that spreads fragrance
Your teachings and words of advice will linger in my mind forever.
Like a hand always there to hold on to,
You led me through the widening path called life.
Like a parental figure always there to look upto,
For guidance it is always you whom I seek.
Like the gifts of nature, expecting nothing in return,
Except a sense of gratitude to say "I have done well for myself, Thank you".
Like a gardner whoose patience leads to the blosoming of flowers,
Your patience is the reason I stand here in full bloom.
Like a sculpter whose skill and expertise transforms into a master peice,
You with your skill and expertise have transformed me
Like a parrot repeats what is said many times,
Iam here to repeat a small word " Thank You".
