FAREWELL FROM A COUNTRY DOCTOR

 

 

Thank you for the kindness

For all that you have shown

  Revealing your most hidden fears

Sharing joys and sorrows

 Passing through these years

My hair has grayed, my eyes have dimmed

In spirit I have grown

 

I have seen your babies bloom

And watched your setting suns

 

Thank you for bestowing trust

Upon a stranger in your midst

Who tried to temper science

With a gentle human touch

 

 God’s will be done

As it must surely be

Yet we who walk upon the earth

Are blessed to seek His light

To ease the bane of misery

So love might pierce the night
