An Ode to Nurses

Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world
They brave the dark
And risk their lives for mine and yours
They worry for their own family
While taking care of others
They welcome the first breath of a new-born
And comfort those who are taking their last
While we’re sleeping
They continue to heal the injured, help the sick and nurse them back to health
A few caring people can change the world
And those nurses who believe that CARE is the real CURE, usually do

This International Nurses Day, 1st for Women thanks our Nation’s Nurses for being our Fearless Guardian Angels
