Scripture of the Day

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”   KJV (Joshua 1:9)

 

Nurses are more
Than people in white.
They are mediators,
between human suffering
and human wellness;
Where what they do
Goes far beyond
What is seen.

This Hospice Nurse Tribute is dedicated to all the Hospice Nurses that daily care for those we love.
May the Angels above watch over them and grace
them with skills of comfort and compassion, always.

When it comes to death and dying
There's a special gift you share
One that Angels all admire
One that goes beyond just care

It's a gift of deep commitment
One that eases pain and fear
And alleviates the sorrow
When the hour of death is near

Yet this gift is more than comfort
More than nursing at its best
For it cradles every patient
Right up till their last request

In this gift you give compassion
Wrapped in dignity and love
And in honor of your calling
There's a tribute found above

As a tribute to your Nursing
All the care that you bestow
High above this earthly planet
Hangs a Hospice Nurse Rainbow

And this rainbow graces Heaven
A reminder of your goals
"End-of-life-care" you excel at
It's your gift to human souls

To the soul of every patient
Every brother, Mom and Dad
Every household member present
Every heart that's feeling sad

To alleviate this sadness
That engulfs a grieving heart
Counseling and intervention
Set your Nursing skills apart

So within the skies of Heaven
Bows of silver dangle high
On a rainbow made of glory
That makes every Angel sigh

And upon each bow of silver
There appears a nurse's name
As an everlasting tribute

     For the Heavens to Proclaim.

A special thank you to Alia, RN (Vitas Hospice Care, Team 192, Florida) for her willingness to share about her job role and making this tribute possible.
