From The Day I Left Work

From The Day When I Left Work


At work I gained many social relationships
And strove to do the best job I could,
Asking myself important questions
That would help me teach others.

I asked myself, what goals would I like to achieve?
I would help widen the space of the world they see.
And they could learn more about themselves
And they would set goals to help each other.

I’m proud of one of my students from long ago
Yongjie is about to finish his PhD.
I have also been able to create my blogs.
That help me send information around the world.

Most important is my wonderful wife
Once a student, who’s now my teacher.
And though I’m retired from a teaching
I still have a great deal to learn.
