Mold Me

Written by: Erika Raiken

With your hands You have molded me You have guided my writing You have done more than I can see With your hands You are the potter, and I am the clay You have molded my mind You have set me on my way With your hands You have held mine tight You have vanquished all doubt You have tried with all your might With your hands You have corrected my spelling You have become my hero You have taught me skills that shall cling With your hands You have shown me You have done what I never thought You have let my inspiration flow free With my hands You have inspired me to write This poem for you I have tried with all my might With my heart Though your teachings were years ago You are still a hero, and a teacher And I love you more than you shall ever know
