To My Departing GP

It was so hard to reach out, to come through your door,
As my fears were intense, my emotions raw;
I sobbed uncontrollably, looking for something to blame,
To justify my feelings, to take away my shame.
Yet your compassion soon wiped those fears away,
As did your empathy for everything I had to say.
In the long months that followed, you were always there,
An extra ally to help me with incredible care;
A safe space, a calming word, a supportive call,
You were willing to support me through it all.
I will miss you greatly for you went that extra mile,
With your time, your kindness and your reassuring smile.
