My Poem for Dr. Dietrich

My oncologist-Dr. Dietrich-retires from United States Army today. He has been by my side for 6 years. Two times, he literally saved my life. I will be forever grateful to him for giving me more time to do the things I want to do in life. His kind manner has changed the way I see the medical profession. I am headed to his retirement ceremony now!

I wrote a poem

Dr. Dietrich-the cancer doc

helping patients with their fear and shock

his most helpful phrase-“I’m not worried”

kept me from feeling flustered and hurried

each appointment began with a little chit chat

I know I’m really going to miss that

He leave us now with his beautiful wife

off to Kentucky…for a brand new life

forever he will stay in our hearts

cancer’s got nothing when he gets to start

with every person he’s walked a few miles

always kicking it Dietrich style!

for me he’s the best..there is no second

my own super hero, my own secret weapon

Dr. Dietrich-

thank you for all you have done

I actually think we did have some fun

Much Love,

Kym
