Come forth words of wisdom and knowledge- of life; Your names will not be obliterated like those of the unsung heroes,  For you have sung to us songs of all the secrets,

The day has come for us, 

To celebrate our teachers' day;

To jubilate and laud with reverberation, 

Of chortling intonation and exhilaration; 

To honour and say ' Thank you' to our dear teachers , 

For their unwavering and selfless service;

In you dear teachers, we see a ray of hope, 

For the unforeseeable future we advance to;

In you dear teachers, we see a concealed gift of life,

Longing to be unearthed that is hidden within us;

For in your chalk you hold and the markers you penned, 

Are transcribed the destiny of our life;

And from your euphonious voice of endless lectures, 

Come forth words of wisdom and knowledge- of life;

Your names will not be obliterated like those of the unsung heroes, 

For you have sung to us songs of all the secrets, 

Of the hidden knowledge of the universe; 

You've transformed schools and colleges into the hub of education, 

And altered classrooms into a living temple of knowledge;

For you embodied the image of a warrior, 

Equipped with wisdom and power, 

Battling the war against illiteracy, ignorance, 

And unethical educational systems in our society;

A 'thank you note' and a ' thank you speech', 

Is all we could proffer for now, dear teachers;

For a day will transpire when we would be in a 'thank you mode', 

And a 'thank you speech' will speak for itself, 

For what we would be on that day we pressed on to.
