Gardeners from Heaven

by Teresa Zink
May 2004

We are your garden you tend
              to each day.
Seeds of respect, self worth, responsibility
              you have planted.
You watch over us, shelter us, help us
              to grow strong.
Each of you guide us in your own
              special way,
To meet the goals that so many
              take for granted.
Thank you, my gardener, for
               helping us along.

I wrote this for my sons teachers and therapist.  I took pictures of the
children in his class and cut them out to be the center of the flowers I
made into memory book for each of his 'gardeners' .
