Patience with Patients

Patience with Patients


Laura Morgan, MD

Winter 2007 - Volume 11 Number 1

To choose the folding into,
then expanding out from another's experience
in its own time,
despite the hounds of hurry;

To wait upon what is beyond
as reflex,
flexible acceptance,
despite the call of clamor;

To follow the leading heart,
trusting trust to heal,
holding separate the still moment
despite the urge to urgency.
