Looking for the perfect appreciation gift for the Nurse in your life?
I receive this beautiful poem as a gift from a special patient when I was working in a hospital. I love it sooo much I decided to engrave it on this beautiful plaques for other nurses to enjoy. The poem sure reflects the truth about a nurses life as a loving and caring nurse.
Have him or her proudly hang this beautiful plaque in their office or at home.
This beautiful poem reads:
The World grows better year by year
Because some nurse in her little sphere
Puts on her apron and grins and sings
And keeps on doing the same old things.
Taking the temperature, giving the pills,
To remedy mankind's numberless ills,
Feeding the baby, answering the bells,
Being polite, with a heart that rebels.
Longing for home and all the while,
Wearing the same old professional smile.
Blessing the new born babe's first breath
Closing the eyes that are still in death.
Taking the blame for the doctors' mistakes,
Oh dear, what a lot of patience it takes.
Going off duty at seven o'clock
Tired, discouraged and ready to drop.
But called back on special at seven fifteen
With woe in heart, but it must not be seen.
Morning and evening and noon and night
Just doing it over and hoping it's right.
When we lay down our caps and cross the bar,
Oh Lord, will you five us just one little star
TO wear in our crowns with our uniforms, new
In that city above, where the head nurse is you.
