Those who in war are the most selfless, dedicated, and kind are the nurses. To these wartime "angels of mercy" is this poem dedicated.


The Battlefield Nurse
copyright 2011 by jon gutmacher

She served her country thru the war
she never did complain
she held their hands
she nursed their wounds
in snow
and cold
and rain

When mortars smashed
around the tents
the surgery didn’t stop
so many lives were saved that day
upon that mountain
top

And when . . . the night time
finally came
and she . . . had time to rest
she still found strength
to hold the hands
of wounded
in their tents

And one day - she grew older
and left – all that she loved
and one night
she did pass away
to Father
God
above

They say that few remember her
but all she helped
will say . . .
that they will
never – once forget
unto
their
dying day
