A people devoted to rendering care
Filled with courage and undeniable strength
Dutiful morning , noon and night…
Noble, honest and down to earth.
The unsung heros who welcome the birth of a new child,
Perform “Last office” to the ones passed away…
Meticulously Administers medication,
ensuring mental and physical wellness…
The empaths who tend to wounds, no matter how sore,
cleans up the poo and helps a client to the loo,
Bathes and feeds the one for whom its hard,
Makes the bed, for ease to sleep..
Nurses are angels in human flesh,
I say so with no reserve..
They do what most people can’t do..
That’s humanity exemplified..
Though, they are most despised,
Slandered by most for whom they’ve cared
It might seem there’s no respite
What’s more is the joy, there is
When a client is hale and Happy..
I say today, I’m proud to be a nurse
Happy to care, happy to help..
