Email Poem | Today's Poetry

The compassion I see when I gaze in your eyes

As the tears flow down your face

Exposes the passion deep inside

Transcending time and space.

Your daily journey of adrenaline

Through madness and despair

This world needs people like yourself,

Those who truly care

It is exhausting and heartbreaking,

More than a playwright could create

But your existence here is no accident;

Some would call it fate.

The sick and addicted come to you

When others show no care

They come for treatment in the end,

Though a cure is just not there

They meet an angel wearing scrubs

Whose determination will not fade.

You care for them and clean them up

Whether they need surgery or a band-aid.

You humbly accept their gratitude

Saying you’re just doing your part

Yet the patients see what I have seen

You have an amazing heart.
