nursing poem

  1. Re-printed with permission:

    I work at Munroe Regional Medical Center in
    Ocala, Florida.
    Recently, I was asked to submit a poem for
    Nurses' week; I thought I would
    take a few minutes to share it with you. Hope
    you like it.

    Nursing is a smile,
    A warm, gentle touch,
    A whisper of hope
    That can mean so much.

    Nursing is a force,
    Silent and true,
    It gives comfort to many,
    But it's chosen by few.

    Nursing is a gift,
    A science, an art,
    Here at Munroe
    Nursing is our heart.

    Elaine Bechard, RN,BSN,BA

    Please feel to share it with others.

    Another nurse poem
    The author is unknown

    Long before you entered nursing
    The lord had played His part,
    Planting seeds of love and kindness
    In the portals of your heart.
    For it's clear you've been gifted
    With a sympathetic ear,
    And blessed from the beginning
    With a willingness to cheer.
    And the people whom you care for
    Are better off by far,
    When they're touched by your compassion,
    By the person that you are.
    For in times of woe and worry
    When they're frightened or blue,
    No one could be more consoling
    Than the friend they'll find in you.

    my ward was given this poem written in calligraphy by a patient who was terminally ill. Its not really a nursing poem but I thought it was really beutiful and thought i'd share it with you:

    Dont cry for the horses this life has set free.
    A million white horses, forever to be.
    Dont cry for the horses now to gods hand,
    As they dance and they prance to a heavenly band.
    They were ours as a gift, but never to keep,
    as they closed their eyes forever to sleep.
    Their spirits unbound, on silver wings they fly,
    A million white horses against the blue sky.
    Look up into heaven, youll see them above.
    The horses we lost, the horses we loved.
    Manes and tails flying, they gallop through time.
    They were never yours, they were never mine.
    Dont cry for the horses, they will be back someday,
    when our time has come, they will show us the way.
    Do you hear that soft flicker close to your ear.
    Dont cry for the horses, love the ones that are here
