The Student

Will you teach me how to tie my shoelaces?
Teach me how to walk?
Teach me to dance, to run, to step, to tango?
Will you teach me how to wake up on early mornings?
Teach me to appreciate the sunrise?
Teach me to look, to find, to see, to open up?

Will you teach me how to live again?
How to feel alive? To breathe lightly?
How to smile with my eyes, the genuine way?
I promise to learn to use my feet
Stand tall and take steps
I promise to search for beauty in simplicity
Glass eyes no more, smile genuinely
I promise to learn
I promise to try.
