Today I saw a nurse. Dressed head to toe in blue A mask, a gown, some gloves Fearlessly working for me and you. She moved from bed to bed Tirelessly doing all her checks But even in the midst of chaos Her kind words to me have great effects She said I’m here beside you Please do not despair This helped calm me down as my lungs gasped for air No visitors can come to me No flowers will pass my door. For a virus has come for us That makes our chest, throat and head sore Yet there is my little angel Walking around the room Looking after us all And fighting off our gloom I watch her hold a patients hand And guide them to the light These nurses truly understand They’re full of courage and might. After each one passes She softly hides her cries. Then takes a little moment And mourns anyone who dies. Today I saw a nurse A mighty powerful person A hero, an angel, a friend. Helping people who have come to the end. Today I saw a nurse She stayed a while beside me That’s when I knew this awful curse Was going to come find me. I thought of all my family outside And those that I so love And felt a hand grab mine Through a blue powdered glove Today I saw a nurse She was there at the very end I felt the love pour from her As she held me like a friend So do not worry friends and family Stay safe at home and fight For today I saw a nurse And the light she had was bright.

I wanted to pop by and tell you I got a short article posted in HerNexxChapter.org. It’s the same as I recently posted here, but it’s nice to have a snippet of my story online for more women and men to read. And through HNC we can reach more and hope that we do.
