About the Poem

I always get attached to my patients, for I try to think of that patient as a member of my own love circle. They talk a lot, but I feel I learn the most by watching the love and concern in their eyes. I pray daily I will never cease to show my patients the love of God in me.

Dedicated to the patients that I have attended to over the years. Although
I might not know them when they first arrive, the love and devotion of their families tell their true story. Regretfully not all patients survive, But the love they have given their family will last forever.

Dedicated To The Man I Never Knew

As I tend to you, in your death.
I feel I know you, by those you left.
You must have been, a wonderful man.
The strength and character of your clan
I see love, deep in their eyes.
The pain they feel is no disguise.
The gentle way they touch your hand,
As you are drifting to the promised land.
Your children talked of being raised.
Respect and devotion lived at your place.
Grateful to God, they appeared to be,
Happy to be a part of your family.
Your wife's heart is beating loud.
Tears well up, her eyes did cloud.
Unable to speak, she begins to cry.
Begging to God to not let you die.
So you see, my friend, This life is past.
But the values you left will always last.
Though I never knew you, I know you well.
Your life, your love, their eyes did tell.
