Dr Reiltin Tynan
- Winning Artistic Entry of the MWF Junior Doctor Prize 2022 'Whole Person Care?'
He will not see the daybreak,
Nor will his kin hold his hand;
But his journey down the river Styx,
Will be watched closely from the land.
His monitors will announce his flight,
The doctor summoned to his side;
His chest will rise and fall one last time
His final heartbeat softly amplified.
He won’t be held closely, or embraced,
No window opened for his soul to roam;
But the doctor will stay, and certify his death-
And then pause to hear the tears from home.
