One Response to A nurse’s poetry

    A Nurse

    When all of your loved ones are gone
    As you’re waiting for the doctor to come,
    I’m the one that you’re getting angry of
    ‘Cause you see me coming around.
    Instead of hating you or getting mad,
    I try to show you how to understand.
    Though I’m not a doctor to save someone’s life,
    I ‘ll sit close beside you and I will listen
    To your complaints, suffering, and pain
    Somehow, I may take away all your fears.
    Though I’m not a doctor who prescribes medicines,
    I’ll serve you with tender, loving, and care.
    For me, that’s something I should be proud.
    Even in your slightest discomforts,
    I am with you always
    Making sure that you’re all right,
    As you’re taking care with love and respect.
    I am the one who believes in miracles
    With my soft and gentle voice,
    I bring you love and hope,
    Render you my skillful care,
    And show you my priceless smiles.
    I am the one that comforts,
    Stands and cares for you.
    The one who dares to touch your hands
    In your delicate moments
    When you’re feeling lonely and hopeless.
    I’m the one who lets you know
    That I will stay close beside you
    When there is no one to embrace you.
    Yes, I am the one with white uniforms.
    A nurse with a caring nature
    Who has compassion and emphaty to others.
    An advocate nurse
    That the ultimate goal on earth is
    For the best of human race.
