A Special Symphony

For over 25 years I had the pleasure of walking into my classroom and being greeted by the most special children.  As this school year begins without me I am filled with precious memories of dedicated colleagues and these sweet children.  I wrote “A Special Symphony” during the last week of my career as a special education teacher last year.  The video entitled, “She’s With Me” by Collin Raye touches my heart each time I watch it and listen to the words.  She represents each child I’ve had the pleasure to teach…

A Special Symphony


If I could place one single note
On a magical musical staff
To represent each precious child
I’ve had the pleasure to teach.
I’d create the loveliest symphony
Forever on their behalf
And fill the air with wonder and joy
As far as the music would reach.

I’d arrange it in the key of C
For courage to remind us all
That God is ever mindful of them
And the daily struggles they face.
Then I’d set it in three quarter time
And waltz at the wheelchair ball
As little ones spin and tiptoe twirl
Dancing in elegant grace.

A pure and simple melody line
Composed of notes from the soul
Would fill the earth with peace and love
For all His children everywhere.
That they may live with hope today
As they strive to reach each goal
Becoming part of the symphony
That floats on the wind as prayer.
