Your therapeutic smile

I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health. I said “There is nothing I can do for you, you can’t do for yourself.” He said “Oh yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that would help.” So I sat with him a while and I asked him how he felt. He said, “I think I’m cured. No, in fact, I’m sure. Thank you stranger, for your therapeutic smile.”
