TITLE: It's Time To Just Move On

Her teaching has been going well,
Her students of all races.
The many stories she could tell,
Of all their smiling faces.

It’s English that they cannot speak,
Their immigrants to this land.
They left their homes and countries weak,
They have stronger feet to stand.

This job of teaching fills her heart,
With joy of helping others.
A zest for life she will impart,
To sisters and their brothers.

And now the cuts have come her way,
So her job will disappear.
She knows in Christ it is OK,
But that doesn’t stop the fear.

It could have left a bitter taste,
Being forced to now move on.
Instead her time she will not waste,
She looks to a brighter dawn.

As a dad my heart is heavy,
For I feel my daughters pain.
But like a fifty seven Chevy,
Some time will bring great gain.

The bitter taste will pass away,
And a sweetness fills the air.
The sun will lend its awesome ray,
Then dissolve away despair.

She grows much stronger through this trial,
For with God she has a bond.
Then with His help she’ll go the mile,
For, “It’s Time To Just Move On.”

Nicely written poem praising your daughter's teaching experiences. Cool title!


You need to check your spelling ("their vs there vs they're vs they are") and plurals vs possessive apostrophes.

Yes, we parents feel for our adult children and wish we could stand in for them at times. But, like you wrote, "She grows stronger..." That's good solid knowledge.

Sounds like something a loving father would write about his daughter. I liked it.
