(to Dr. John Brandt)
He took his hat off,
a sign of respect and admiration,
for all those who care for
children struggling with cancer.
We, the audience, took our hats off
to a doctor who has a passion
and compassion for the little people
fighting for their lives.
With hats off we listened to a family,
so brave and so grateful,
tell of the kindness and support
of a loving, caring cancer team.
With hats off and tears flowing
we watched the doctor and his
beloved little patient hug one another.
