Tender mercies, Gentle Touch

Little kids, needles, scary places Doctors, nurses, with smiling faces Strange bed, strange sound Spooky environs all around Pokes and prods, pink flowered gown Tender mercies, gentle touch Thank goodness mom is stickin’ round Else this scary place would be waaay too much! Toy placed in tiny hand Gatorade given to drink Young minds come to understand This is not so bad! (ya’ think?) Soon the aches and nose so stuffy Give way to the nurses loving care Eyes once teary, red and puffy Sparkle anew and shine so fair They leave with smiles on timid faces All better now! No longer sick! Soothed by nurses caring graces That helped make the time pass so quick R,N.’s and Docs: such busy people! Yet they take the time and give so much And the most precious gift from these busy people? Open hearts, acts of caring kindness …Tender mercies, Gentle touch… Dedicated to all caregivers But especially the great people at Pediatrics E.R. U.M.C Las Vegas Nevada By David Whalen
