A poem I wrote on another blog for nurses’ week
She will come and be with you
Guiding you on that deep and personal journey
Shining a light ahead for you
A light that only comes from within
And creeps into your lonely places of suffering.
He will speak kind words in the dark of night
Opening your windows to fresh air
Holding your hand gently and bringing about peace
And acting as a guide for you on your path toward the unknown.
They will walk with you
On your personal healing journey
Supporting your capacity for healing, and ending suffering
All brought about by Love
And skills developed during the nurses’ own healing journey.
These nurses of healing and light
Inspired by Florence Nightingale and purveyors of human caring,
They are shining the light into the darkness of healthcare
They are healing the heart of the world.
