Thank you Poems for Doctors
- Thank You, Doctor
Let this day remind you
that you're special
through and through
And thought about so warmly
(and so very often, too!),
You're helpful and supportive
in a way that warms the heart,
you are there
to play your thoughtful part.
Thank you for your kindness
which can never be repaid
And for your understanding
and the difference it made.
Every night I lie awake
And every day I lie abed
And hear the doctors, Pain, and Death,
Conferring in my head.
They speak in scientific tones,
Professional and low--
One argues for a speedy cure,
The other, sure and slow.
To one so humble as myself
It should be a matter for some pride
To have such noted fellows here,
Conferring at my side.
- Sara Teasdale
D - Dedicated
O - Observant
C - Compassionate
T - Thorough
O - Organised
R - Reliable
- Dear Doctors, Thank you
To earn the Title Doctor
Takes many years to achieve
It takes more than just studying
I really do believe
To become a doctor
Is to fulfill a lifelong dream it’s true
As this prestigious title
Is only granted to few
A doctor starts with many dreams
To make the world a better place
To help and heal each person
No matter color, breed, or race
From that place of healing
Is a reassuring gentle smile
Because patients know that you
Will always go the extra mile
You have the care and compassion
That no textbook could define
You really care about people
As you are so generous with your time
You are so very special
In everything you do
I wish you only sweet success in life
With my sincerest blessings for you.
