A Poem

Today one of our patients gave me this moving poem which I want to share in our Blog:


Twice you have healed me
induced tremors that annealed my hemispheres
tying all that needs be tied
severing all that binds my soul to sorrow

You’ve added chemical succor
smoothed the waves of my ocean
reduced the depth of my plunge

It’s time to heal myself
use my newly expressive face
to grow more wrinkles
melt the mask that convinced the world
I’d already gone

So I will grow my audience
link this life to love
accept loss
celebrate these gains
