you taught me well

You have taught me well, my friend,

less by words and more by demonstration.

Yesterday I came home and felt proud,

because what I had learned from you was seen and appreciated.

You weren’t there, but your efforts were.

We’ll play again.

Yesterday I came home and felt twofold proud.

At university someone had asked me for academic advise and an open ear, someone more advanced than me.

At capoeira class I was introduced to someone as an advanced student, and for one exercise the others were told to follow my rhythm, as my timing was found to be good.
