a song really but in "poem" form

"
                                        I've been a school teacher now
                       for 12 years of my life;
  planning points and listening,
                      just trying to get things right.
    
   The kids gave me their everything
                      and taught me 'bout their fight,
   some had homes and some were gnomes
                     but all had dreams in spite...

         and I learned-
   that the sun also rises -
                           even tho' it wears disguises,
                               sometimes I couldn't find it
  but the children showed me how.

        Yeah and money may blind us,
                           evaporate our kindness
         until the kids remind us
                           it's just paper any how!!

                       I recently hung up my spikes,
    turned in my badge and keys.
                       Didn't want to make a big  scene,
   Just - to Exit softly please.
                       When the kids found out,
   no clamor nor shout
                       I thought that I was home-free
                                      When I reached home,
                       after crying alone,
                                      I saw a note taped to my tree:

          Thanks for showing us that-
                              the sun also rises,
           even tho' it wears disguises,
                              sometimes we couldn't find it,
           but your teaching showed us how!
            
                              Yeah and money may blind us,
          evaporate our kindness,
                              until your words remind us -
          it's just paper any how!!
