Mrs Baker - True Story contest

Was a dark and spooky night
Was on night duty at an old hospital
The ward was new to me
Geriatric ladies who were poorly

I ran myself  ragged answering the bells
Except for one old dear who just lay there and smiled
I would ask is everything  ok anything you need
I am fine dear she always replied

Time came  for the hand over 
The day staff had arrived
Went  through the names reporting  on each
Til i came to Mrs Baker the staff looked perplexed

Ar you sure of the name they asked in unison
Of course i replied bed no 4
She's been  a sweety no trouble at all
Staff they said we have no one of that name

I went to the bed it was empty except
For a slight indentation in the sheets
I looked , they explained, Mrs Baker
Had died ten years ago, was happy there

Now and again she came back for a visit
I hope I will meet her again.
