The trip

Waiting in the line, I look down
The little angels, shining bright
Perhaps 10 years old
Her right lower leg is gone
In its place a support to help her walk

Tears spring to my eyes
As a nurse I think of her journey
Both known and unknown to me
Thank you little angel
For reminding me
For giving me the moment to be
For letting my own heart open
To God’s gracious healing
