The nurse in white, ghosts from the past


The nurse in white, ghosts from the past
Tended the victims of war
With wounds quite horrendous
And screams all around
They were peace in the midst of a  fray
The nurses today wear colorful coats
Tending the victims of life
The wounds heal much better
The pain is well managed
And still they are the peace in the chaos
For whatever is worn whether color or white
They tend to their patients with care
They help the hurts heal,
They salve the pains sting
And bring peace to the place that they dwell

Sandi, My mom just went through cancer surgery and the kindness of the nurses stands like a lighthouse against the storm. Thank you for what you do. Patrick

Oh hun I have so much to say! I am a nurse who deals with emotional stuff every day! I am a psych nurse, a catagory of nursing poorly appreciated until the mind has righted itself in the bathwater of dirty psychosis! Sometimes it never happens, and yet we always try, we always offer support and caring!
Reviewed by Axilea MU
It's an interesting subject for poetry and I wonder if you would be interested in writing a piece from a closer distance and by appealing to the senses. I have the impression that there would be so much to learn, in poetic form, from the particular experience and emotions of a nurse.
Lovely ghost from the past, really.
