Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
and the Wisdom to hide the bodies of those Doctors I had to kill because they pushed me too far…
Being A Nurse Means…
You will never be bored.
You will always be frustrated.
You will be surrounded by challenges,
So much to do and so little time.
You will carry immense responsibility And limited authority.
You will step into people’s lives
And you will make a difference
Some will bless you,
Some will curse you.
You will see people at their worst
And at their best.
You will never cease to be amazed
At people’s capacity for Love, courage, and endurance.
You will experience resounding triumphs
And devastating failures.
You will cry a lot,
You will laugh a lot,
You will know what it is to be human,
And to be humane.
Dedicated to the man I never Knew…
As I tend to you, in your death.
I feel I know you, by those you left.
You must have been, a wonderful man.
The strengh and character, of your clan
I see love, deep in their eyes.
The pain they feel is no disquise.
The gentle way , they touch your hand.
As you are drifting, to the promised land.
Your children talked, of being raised.
Respect and devotion, lived at your place.
Grateful to God, they appeared to be.
Happy to be a part of your family.
Your wife’s heart, is beating loud.
Tears well up, her eyes did cloud.
Unable to speak, she begins to cry.
Begging to God, to not let you die.
So you see, my friend, this life is past.
But the values you left, will always last.
Though I never knew you, I know you well.
Your life, your love, their eyes did tell.
Regretfully… not all patients survive,
but the love they have given their family will last a lifetime.
