In the balance, hangs lives and souls.
We are all in need of a guide
For experience in our roles.
As a surgeon, I am often asked,
“How have you gained such skills?”
Supposing it came from one class-
But it is mentoring that instills.
Learning from the expert
Is to be carefully taught.
Both must stay alert
And the best mentor must be sought.
Let the Savior lead-
He has been there before.
His knowledge we all need.
He stands and waits at the door.
Learning from the Expert
