Upon Retirement

Poetry, Taos Writing Retreat

“From My Patients”
care given freely
gentle, kind, quiet concern
now rest, live your turn

“From My Colleagues”
will be greatly missed
thank you my friend, my mentor
parting is so sad

“From My Self”
a life still exists
outside, beyond and after
forty years of work

“From My Spouse”
forty-three years married, now
face-to-face all day

“From My Profession”
from outside bedrail
care with empathy and heart
soon inside bedrail
