An Angel Without Wings
(Ode to a Nurse)
You cared for the sick and held many hands through the years.
You laughed with some and with others you cried real tears.
You carried out orders from one too many grumpy docs, all the while glancing often at the clock.
A nurse never knows what complication each illness brings, but you did your duties like ‘An angel without wings'.
By Gail Gabel. R.N.
Happy International Nurses’ day to all the nurses who keep patients feeling safe, secure and looked after, sometimes during their darkest hour.
