Teo with her smile alight
Come to make the morning bright
Yellow sweater, rosy cheeks
A hint of accent when she speaks

Grinning a mischievous smile
When the boss is off to trial
She visits me to breathe, relax
I lure her out with nuts and snacks

Teo with her quirky tales
When the conversation fails
Dancing like a joyful rover
When the day is nearly over

Sighing with her mouth turned down
When she’s gotten pushed around
Now she leaves for peace of mind
Miss her, we who stay behind

She gives us gifts to say goodbye
A note that makes Alicia cry
Keep in touch, I won’t forget her
Let her know me ever better.

For Teo, who likes rhyming poems and who will be greatly missed.
