Little Asia

Little Asia,

If only you knew

The impact you would make on my life.

Six, maybe seven years later
If only you knew that I wouldn't understand

It until maybe a year ago.
Who would have guessed, that three little words,
"I Can't Read"
During a third a grade test

Would have such a powerful impact on my young life.
Rather than reading you the words,

I taught you how. 
Little Asia, If only you knew

That at that age… you were not alone.
If only you knew.
If only you knew that, you would encourage me

To sub as a teacher a few years later.
If only you knew

The impact a few hundred kids like you

Would have on me.
And the love that I have for you all.
Little Asia,

If only you knew

The impact you made on me,

Would be as strong as the impact I hope to make

On every child I meet

Since the day I met you.

Little Asia,

If only you knew.
