For Services Rendered

Early on, you took me under your wing,
kept me safe from the wolves at my door
& ahead of the hounds on my trail…

You empowered me to take back control
for the direction my life was heading…
Emblazoned on my mind are these 5 words –
“Why are you still working?”
… it took me years to mull that one over
but it made so much sense
in the worst of times on the job –
free of the humiliation & clowning around
and the end of selling my soul on demand

Thank You for being you & for sharing my concerns…
I deeply appreciate all the care that you gave me…
You led me to the light at the end of the tunnel…
I’ll never let myself forget…

[to my longest reigning psychiatrist]
