The ancient science of nursing adheres To the principles of tender loving care. Based upon physical, mental and spiritual techniques Any other approach to illness would surely be bleak As a nurse you see people in all its stages of life All through the course of human events from joy to strife Joy from witnessing the blessed baby's first breath To the ultimate journey of the individual's death At the bedside you stand on hallowed ground Beside you stands Jesus, in silence so profound The Son of God stands ever so diligent To bring peace to the suffering patient If the individual is to go to his heavenly home above Jesus will carry them in his arms with tender love I have witnessed the face wracked with pain, a soft whimper A silent prayer of love to the Lord above you can whisper Holding the patient's hand I have felt the life leave. Now was the time for loved ones to begin to grieve I know in my heart, Jesus who stood over the dying person, Intervened and ushered the soul Home before he could worsen God has blessed us so we become the sentry of love For our fellowman. Now I am the patient and God has spared me, That must be His plan I must give credit to the angels of mercy, entire medical staff Who stood watch over me, every day? I must have a task to complete; I know not what it is But have faith in my Lord that He will point the way. ©Carol G.

May you always walk with Angels. What we do for ourselves alone dies with us. What we do for others and the world, remains and is immortal. Author Unknown
