“THANK YOU FROM YOUR PATIENTS”
How blessed we are as patients, for our Doctor is one of the best-
Her knowledge, compassion and kindness – puts her way above the rest.
I wonder if she even knows, how many lives she's touched -
How she's truly made a difference, to all who love her so much.
Although we call her Doctor, she's really more like a friend-
To list her many attributes, I find it hard to begin.
For one, her bedside manner, has a way of calming our fears -
The advice we've come to depend on, through moments of laughter and tears.
We always feel she honestly cares, as she listens to our worries and woes -
With such undivided attention, how she does it, God only knows.
So on behalf of those you've treated, and the lives you've surely saved -
We send a collective thank-you, for the part of your life you gave.
The part that brings re-assurance, and comfort in our time of need -
In our hearts you hold a special place, our heroine, indeed!
With Love and Admiration,
Becky Stone, a patient, on behalf of all your patients
