Hi as people come and go
Wearing a coat of pain
Never seeing others needs
A mind that walks alone

How are you?
Just a nicety
People are really rushed
Listening may bring hurt

Oh no!
When the physician talks
People are seldom ready
The reality of life and death

Thank you isn’t heard that much
Graciousness doesn’t abound
Also fear and anger
Prowl the hallways of the down

A cry is an emotion heard
Often-in doorways and halls
A reaction to good or bad news
No one is immune

Words unsaid or
Wished we had said
Are things most thought
A waiting room is the wrong place for regrets
