Phew! I’m still feeling your emotion
Your pleas reaching out to others
The integrity in your voice appealing
Full of empathy for all suffering
Puppy Doc your a L A D Y
i know you’ll not give up on others
And to maintain your goal in life
Don’t ever give up on yourself
I know you being very clever
Will have quite easily deduced
That I have got some batteries
My hearing aid now in use
Your dulcet tones your poem
Have indeed invoked this reply
Not my hearing now at fault
It is my eyes you caused to cry
I’ll not wipe my tears I’ll catch them
Keep them as a memory of a Doctor
Who pleads for health and happiness
And made my eyes shed tears
Of sadness and overflowing joy.
Thank you Puppy Doc,
Your words mean a great deal to me, thank you.
