For Dr. Mark Lemon the head of the E.R. at Newton-Wellsley Hospital
Thank you for your kindness. This is for you..........
Kindness is in a gentle touch.
A feeling that is sublime -
A gesture that means so much -
Words alone take up too much time.
And seldom aren't as heard -
But in a soft and gentle caress -
The meaning is never blurred.
It's a caring way to express.
Reaching out to another -
Reassuring in a tactile way.
As the warmth from a loving mother.
Then the child's fears allay.
Yet, sadly so seldom it's seen.
Living in this world of great doubt.
But, oh, how much it would mean.
For someone to just reach out!
