Bearers of Light
Nurses run with your torches of light To relieve those suffering From peril and plight Up and down the hall In and out of rooms Bring the light and answer the call Jumping hurdles of all sort Delivering pain relief to the injured and dying Putting patients first and being their cohort Nurses run with your torches of health-giving light To heal the sick and comfort the forgotten Day and night Your reward will be a smile or a sparkle in one’s eye An elation that is felt in the heart A feeling that money could never buy Nurses run with your torches of light With illumination for those in need Bearers of the light be diligent and forthright
