Medical Mission Heals The Clinician

Easy landing, now standing, everyone gets on the bus
Bumpy and rough - we reach the remote community
Almost a day away from the land of opportunity

Foreign translation, greetings and salutations, it's time to see the cases
Many strange faces, but we know their conditions
Experienced treatment from the nurses and physicians

Twilight hour, no shower, no tub
Wearing sweaty scrubs - all their smiles express gratitude
This brightens our attitude while working in this hot geographical latitude

Night time, stars shine, we all unwind
Food and drink, but we're all too tired to think
A song begins and cultures merge as we sing in sync

Now alone, away from home, inside my mind a fantastic feeling
Who's wounds were we really healing - asleep and dreaming
Understanding the meaning...

- Ted
