Helping Hands

From the dirtiest job to the simplest task
      They do whatever they are ask
     Cleaning wounds or holding hands
        Doing what the job demands
        Being there to lend an ear
       Helping calm a patient's fear
     Standing tall when most would run
    Never quitting till the job was done
Through long hard days they've been right there
         Devoted souls to human care
    With some they laugh and some they cry
     They do their best but still some die
    They cannot hide from the pain they feel
    Because each life they've touched is real
       So when a life turns for the worse
           GOD won't send Angels:
            He'll send a Nurse
