Poem--sort of #1

Do you ever wonder what became of me,
Past guardians of my sanity?

Do you ever wonder what I do,
The same thing I ponder about you?

I often see you in the night,
Still holding up that darn flashlight.

I hear your words time and again,
I sometimes think of you as friend.

You made a difference in my life,
So forevermore, I laid down my knife.

Tonight, I wish you a gentle good night.
Tomorrow I will rise with all my might
To make it through another day,
Survive whatever comes my way.

Without your life, I wouldn't have mine,
I send my love and thanks...I hope you don't mind.

That's a wonderful post. And yes, we wonder about our patients after they leave the hospital.
