Patiently Waiting

A scared new patient
Sitting in the waiting room
Looks around and stares.

There is no music
To distract nervous people
Playing overhead.

The silence is loud
Magazine pages turning
Sounds of restlessness.

Nurses open doors
Patients enter and come out
Announcing each name.

Something is spoken
Laughter spills from a corner
And floods the big room.

Folks look up to see
Smiling and relaxed faces
Nerves have become calm.

The waiting room chilled
There is a warm acceptance
Patients are now friends.
