Ode to Fuller

Always lending an open ear
To hearts no one wants to hear

Helping young and old without complain
Teaching each not to shift the blame

Changing the course of each one 
Learning to appreciate who they've become
He has impacted my life when I was blue
Mom's, dad's, sisters and brothers too

He has embraced his life's profession
Helping people cope with life's lessons

Mr. Fuller, I wish you the best with love
Continue your work, from here thereof

You help to lighten everyone's load
and for that, I write you this ode!


This was written for the tribute  contest hosted by Christie Moses

Mr. Fuller Is a great person I'm so thankful to have him as my friend. you're the best!!!!!!

    Gratefulness is astounding in this poem, you know what you are thankful for ... we mostly take others for granted, not knowing how their life mend ours. Good write, and thanks to you, my friend.
