Dedicated to nurses everywhere...

 

I'll be your angel, clothed in white,
To soothe your fevered brow;
I'll lift you high upon my wings:
This is my solemn vow.

I'll be your soldier, clad in white,
To help you fight disease;
I'll wipe out germs and pathogens
And others no one sees.

I'll be your teacher, dressed in white,
To help your knowledge grow;
I'll work with you, and day by day,
You'll learn what you should know.

I am your nurse, in purest white,
I'll strive to make you whole,
And do my best to heal the wounds
Of body, mind, and soul.
