The One You Never Thought Cared

We are a hand that opens a door
We are a voice that says good morning
We are a teacher without a lesson plan
We are a counselor on the move   
We have two ears that hear and listen 
We have two eyes that never see enough
We are known by first name to those who matter
We are unknown to the many who complain
We are not valued by those we work for
We are worth more to those who depend on us
We make perfect trips every day and no one notices
We make one mistake and the tears of many will fall
Our worst fear, our nightmare could come to pass  
Our pain most profound is one few will ever know
We are the folks you never thought cared
We drive the big yellow bus

Thanks for the comment! I am school bus driver and I wrote it for school bus drivers and it has been well received by drivers all over the country and I think that is great.

Hello, Kim I love the passion from your write. When I was young, my parents relied on that big yellow bus. I have to admit, when I was young I looked forward when getting on and off the bus. Not only did the driver bring security on board, he knew our names and greeted us with smiles,.. In my heart I knew he cared. A lovely write... always~ LINDA

Thank you Linda! The kids always seem to know which bus drivers really care. Once upon a time bus drivers were taught to know their kids names and where they got off and on. I could tell you the names of the students I had on my first route twelve years ago and where they got on and off the bus. Some are the adults on my Facebook page.
