THE BOSS

You were there for me...

After the birth of my child
When I needed time
To marvel, and rest, and adjust.

I appreciated the flowers, 
And condolences...
On the passing of my parent.

And the patience and empathy
You expressed after the funeral... 
For my car.

When I missed time
Due to fever and chills...

You reassured me
I could cover my bills...

And welcomed my return 
From a much needed vacation
With a standing ovation.

Kindness, understanding, consideration
Not the standard definition
Together, how many barriers we have crossed...

That redefine me, the employee
And you, the boss...
I appreciate all that you do.
