You probably didn’t know I watched or that my eyes did see
That you have practiced what you preached
And you influenced me.
You spoke your words with power
and you caused me to believe
I thank my God for men like you
for you influenced me.
You taught me by the life you lead
your actions were the key
that changed my whole existance
yes your love influenced me.
And now I’m on the journey to be all that I can be
I thank you, Sir, my teacher friend, for you influenced me.--copyright 1985 SPF
