AT MY TEACHER’S ABSENCE

You showed me at my request,

Now that I am alone,

I find myself in a quest,

To get the answer alone.

I thought I would always have you,

But your advancement is crucial,

My thought tracks you,

Now I have to do the essential.

Such a great influence you had,

Almost denying the quintessence,

Lone and learning it hard,

At my teacher’s absence.
