Best Of Care........Dedicated To The Selfless Intern - Poem by saadat tahir

Ringed in a circle of compassion,
Sipped from the pond of dedication,

Values of core at school attended.
Dignity, integrity had befriended.

With valor seek those in despair.
Lend forth a hand of tender repair.

Touch of gentle patience, and love.
Through a hand that wears a glove

Sacrificed frolic, found time to stay.
Heed the duty, slept others away.

Unknown patient or one who is dear.
Accept HIS will when the end is near.

One day yu’ll help a family mourn.
Touch then the shoulder of forlorn.

Working each day to help them bear.
Invent and contrive to chase the fear.

A new beginning to wipe that tear.
Fend for ones whose life’s a smear.

With tenderness do a blessed job.
To pass a catheter or twirl a knob.

In havocs keep cool with a smile
At times make a dream worthwhile.

Every day teaches something new.
To impersonally provide what is due.

Lots to learn of kindness to share.
Give to needy the best of care.

    Your poem is a reflection of a beautiful mind with exemplary values. It encompasses the true insights of your profession - not just the rewards, but the dedication and long hours of servitude and training. So honorable, and a worthy tribute to those just beginning their journey.

    I like the way you have used rhyming couplets in this poem to those who dedicate their lives to caring for the sick and infirm. Your first line 'ringed in a circle of compassion' is excellent and your sentiments throughout the piece are well expressed. My only criticism is about your use of meter - and many may disagree - but I like rhyming verse to have a regular beat. That being said, I did enjoy the poem and this couplet stood out:

    'Unknown patient or one who is dear.
    Accept HIS will when the end is near.'

    'Thou shalt not kill, but may not strive officiously to keep alive.'
    Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
