Ode to Palliative Care
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Palliative care, we dedicate these love words,
Solely to you.
You met us where we were at yesterday,
Even met with the patient and family again today,
Tomorrow you will meet as a given,
Forever and always.
Palliative care you came along,
Asked the tough questions like no one before,
Palliative care you spoke to my soul and captured me fully,
And forever more.
Palliative care I give you my heart,
To take care of my family and all that is me,
You lit a fire and spark,
Can you see?
Palliative care you ask me about QOL and make me happy,
As only the team approach can,
Having you in my corner and being with you,
My life is grand.
Palliative care, thank you
With all that is me.
Thank you my boo and my blessing,
for preserving my dignity, for all of eternity.
