To give as you have given takes a love
Hallowed by a special kind of grace.
After all, the lives we will embrace,
Now are shaped by those that our hearts move.
Kids need the kind of leader you have been.
Your efforts don't come close to the real sum:
On your life we build what we become,
Undertaking only what we've seen.
