You are there to grab the little feet of each baby,
welcoming into this world.
You were there beside my betterhalf
to assist her giving birth to my babaies,
you wrapped them clean and warm,
handed me those precious bundles of joy with a smile,
Vaccinated each little arm by pricking lovely,
You were there as a soothing cold swab in high fever
You were there in the stroke ward to support,
reassure, encourage and help my Mom walk!!
helped her out to defy hemiplegia, illuminating life!!!
When i stood beside my Dad in the cold of the ICCU,
numb and void, you were there gently pressing shoulder
fed me, insisted to be strong
elightened me on life and death, prepared me
to accept the inevitable departure of Dad's soul,
stood there with prayers as he passed away peacefully
Brave heroes, frontline fighters
My heart beats, overflows with respect on recalling the faces of each one of you.
Happy NURSES DAY.
