A Nurses Work Is Never Done

A nurse’s work is never done

Run ragged all day, is hardly fun

But no matter what they have to do

They always have time to care for you

From dusk ‘til dawn they slave away

Dealing with patients every day

How they manage, Lord only knows

They just seem to handle it, however it goes

A friendly smile, a pleasant refrain

Makes the patient feel better again

Be it severe cases, or just taking blood

These wonderful nurses are awfully good

So much respect these nurses deserve

Anyone that doesn’t, they’ve got a nerve

But alas some don’t appreciate what nurses do

In the brilliant way they look after you

So, hats off to nurses, wherever you are

You’re all fantastic, shining stars

Keep up the great job you do every day

Looking after us patients in your own special way

Thank you!
