Tribute to a front line nurse
Tears rolled down the nurse’s face As she removed the blood-soaked mesh Inhaling hard a deep, deep breath When she saw the mangled flesh.
The doctor’s team worked very hard To save this soldier’s life Who trod on an enemy landmine So early in his life.
His operation is over, And into the best of care This soldier’s life is balancing Between treatment and a prayer.
The nurse’s dedication And the doctor’s skill too Working both together So this boy can pull through.
The times they’ve seen this happen Since this stupid war did start Their skill affected so deeply And it pulls the strings of their hearts.
But still they work relentlessly To repair these bodies right Even if it means working All through the long, long night.
Sometimes they are successful And sometimes they are not. But the nurses and the doctors Of the Medical Corps Should never be forgot.
So when you see a large cross And if it’s painted red Remember that without them, Millions more would be dead.
Dedicated to those men and women who gave their all to save those who went to the front
