Long before you entered nursing
had played His part,
Planting seeds of love and kindness
In the portals of your heart.
For it's clear that you've been gifted
With a sympathetic ear,
And blessed from the beginning
With a willingness to cheer.
And the people who you care for
Are better off by far,
When they're touched by your compassion,
By the person
that you are.
For in times of woe and worry
When they're frightened or they're blue,
No one could be more consoling
than the friend they'll find in you.
