I Nurse

Yes It is i I am The Nurse Who held your eye's gaze And so to held your hand At what seemed the world's end Your guardian angel Repeating your name Begging you to stay the course Not give in Or up Saving you from crossing over With no personal investment Pending in the outcome But yet you did and do Every day and again tomorrow Without fail or fault Stoic brave beyond reproach To many not the few Who for without you Tomorrow never comes Will arrive For thou art I nurse Death's only One true foe Amen Cherished be And blessed they Each and every One of them I only pray your reward Be fitting Of your Self- Sacrifice Death may be an outlet But your kindness is the inlet

Dear Christopher, they are truly angels on earth some of them, sacrificing their health for us, I pray we realize the gift they give every day, I do, I have 3 nurses living in my complex, I see how tired they are at end of day . Take care, it was nice reading your poems, be well, and write :)

Cheers MRR They truly are angels who go way and far above the call of duty or their calling. And 1 day we are all bound to find this out Take care yourself hugs and blessings

A great tribute to the unsung heroes of our hospitals, And an excellent poem Most definitely can relate to this one Christopher, the doctors get most of the accolades although sometimes out of necessity they can be very clinical, but the nurse is the one with the human touch, that goes the extra mile, without being judgmental, I myself would fail miserably in this career, I’d probably prefer the operating theatre, cheers David
