It is with tears in my eyes but a song in my heart that I wrote these words.
It’s been three years now since he left this earth,
But he has never left my heart.
Today, I owe who I am to this great man
Who still plays a major part in my life.
This special man of whom I speak
Was my Principal in the past.
The lessons that I have learnt from him,
Will forever live on in my mind.
To this day he continues to guide me,
Even from The Great Beyond.
For now, when I am placed in a situation of authority,
My mind races back to those days gone by,
The days when I was under his command,
And I find myself asking this question,
“How would George have handled this?”
Somehow I always get the strength and the inspiration
To do what’s expected of me.
I’m sure he’s looking down on me.
And I know he would have been so proud,
While listening to me address an entire school
As this was something I could not have done before.
He was a man of eloquence,
A man who could move the world with words,
And although I am no where close to his standard,
I know that he would have cheered me on
Had he been here today.
He is helping me to grow
Even From The Great Beyond.
This is about one of the dearest man I have ever known and loved....My former Principal, George Worrell....
