A Nurse's Curse Legacy

By Lissa   

I hurt for everyone
Empathy is my curse
Though no-one cares for me..
That makes it so much worse.
As nurses we are born
with a gift to feel others pain
Not just about our patients
Even strangers in the rain
We can make it better
Or that's what we believe
and the day that we cant fix it
A lot of emotions we do recieve
God gave me this gift
My way to give back
I will continue to give my all
Never cutting any slack
When someone feels better
Maybe just by what you said
Its mind boggling to think
One day I'll need to be hand fed
Nurses are a blessing
The ones that have the gift
Just don't be too hard on yourself
After all it's our jobs to uplift
