A Tribute to our Teachers
We've Never Forgotten About You
by Eula Calhoun Allen
We've traveled this whole world over
We've encountered disappointments too.
But dear teachers we want you to know
that we've never forgotten about you.
You taught us the full meaning of receiving an education,
For that reason we stayed in school
we looked forward to graduation.
There were probably times you didn't know
how to cope,but still you never gave up.
You knew there was some hope.
Some of us were mischievous and loved to play games.
You've probably never forgotten the ones
I imagine you can recall the names.
Dear teachers, we want to thank you
for your patience and understanding.
Many times you were tried
By some of us who were demanding.
We know it wasn't easy
Obstacles got in your way,
But your concern was for every student.
You knew we would be on our own someday.
Teachers, dear teachers, we love you
you’ve toiled down through the years.
We know your work has brought you joy
we also know that there were tears.
Today you can be proud
You've made lawyers, doctors, and teachers
Homemakers, nurses, secretaries, and generals
Thanks be to God, we have some preachers.
Very soon this day will end
Once again we'll say good-bye
But we'll never,
never forget the official staff
of Dogan High.
