We are nurses... that's what we do.
We don’t wear a cape We don’t have wings We are not angels We are none of those things
What we are is human We lead with our heart We give all of ourselves From the very start
For every patient And every family we see We do everything we can To honor their needs
We rarely eat We forget to pee We have bumps and bruises And scrapes on our knees
We are tired We are cranky We don't have time to take breaks Every bone in our body constantly aches
But when we look in your eyes When we see your pain and your fear We make a promise to you That we will stay very near
We want you to know You are not doing this alone We are right beside you We will get this done
We will support you We will provide you with the very best care We will make sure That you are not feeling scared
We will sit at your beside We will stay close to you We are nurses… that’s what we do!
Happy Nurses Week (day, month, year...) Love, Gabby
