Tribute to a front line nurse

Black Country Bugle - - NEWS - By Mick Mor­ris

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
