A poem of appreciation
You’re all giving one year,
To work with students as a near peer.
Doing it all as a volunteer.
So I can’t think of a better occasion,
For us to share our appreciation.
You’ve already met many challenges and persevered,
Overcome obstacles that you’ve feared.
Now serving during COVID, you’ve had to adapt fast
Shape-shifting for any role you’re cast.
But I promise you the testing times won’t last.
When people ask you where you were during the global pandemic,
You can say that you contributed when it counted.
And as the pressure mounted,
You came through, rain or shine,
To offer your help, on the frontline.
