Heal

thought-catalog-246312

To teach is to heal
maybe I could feel
the words that they feel
going over the lessons and chapters again
maybe I could learn the
meaning tucked
in the dog-eared pages

To teach is to heal
maybe I can smell the fragrance
of the rose safely tucked
in the pages of that book again.

To teach is to heal
maybe my soul can be reminded again
of the morals hidden in the
story of our life
without giving it all away

To teach is to heal
maybe I can be guided by the light
I'm carrying for them
maybe they become the beacon
for my lost soul
and show it the way home

To teach is to heal
maybe I get  a second chance in life
to redo all the stories
maybe this time
I can safely erase
all the hidden hurt and pain.

To teach is to heal...
