Some Things I Love About You

I thought of some reasons why I love you so,
And I jotted them down just to let you know.

There’s the joy you bring with songs you sing;
The way you say your ABC’s;
The way you hiccup when you sneeze.

I love coloring together; playing with a feather;
The way you fix your hair
And those clothes you wear.

I love your hugs so tight; watching you fly a kite;
The cute things you write,
And your smiles so bright.

I love your radiant face; your warm embrace;
And having you near
When I shed a tear.

I love angels made in snow; watching you grow;
Your sincere prayer and
Showing others you care.

Now, as from my class you go, I want you to know
Just how special you are.
You are my shining star!

Just one more thing before I’m through.
Please believe that this is true:
I love you for being you.

Love, Your Teacher
