Neo-Nurse's Song

Location

The many alarms,
they sing ever so often-
our sense is softened.

The screams,pain, and tears-
our patients and families
remembered for years.

Hearts beat one last time,
her lungs fill and they depress-
to take that last breath.

What if, what if I...
Did I do my best to try?
Now. My turn to cry.

Wake up, answer phone.
"Unit needs you."- Nurse's call.
Another day. Stay strong, don't fall.
