Reaching for Stars

This décima is for Ronovan’s challenge this week: Star. For whatever reason, I’ve been having difficulty with décimas the last few weeks. I wrote 2 of them, and this is my third, because none of them have seemed good enough. Still, it’s better to contribute something rather than nothing. I was inspired by my old job (which I had to quit because of the shutdowns) at a math tutoring place.

I hope that it is more than math
I taught the students; may they know
They matter as a person, so
They might be on a happy path.

I hope that I could make them laugh,
And teach them how to reach for stars.
These happy memories aren’t far
From me; may they remember too.
Although those former times are through,
They echo wherever we are.
