You are not just a counselor,
Though craziness you do endure.
You are not just a therapist,
You are a spirit specialist.
You are a mother substitute,
And you could not be more astute
At showing love and great restraint.
You have the patience of a saint.
No use of height or weight could measure
All we've accomplished together
In that little office there
Where I first came in despair.
Your talent lies in mending souls
Wrought with trauma, on parole;
You're the one who gives a damn
When others just have doors to slam.
My Nancy, you have guided me
To be the best that I can be,
And I would like to say "Thank You"
For all you are and all you do.
