A nurse must love her work
Though many times she deals with a jerk
Through all the travails of human interaction
Her genuineness must be her primary attraction

Her demeanor is truly stoic
Her rush to help is truly heroic
She is one of a multitude whose job is her passion
Jenna is the ultimate angel of compassion


I was in the hospital and met a nurse who was dealing with an abusive patient. She was about to
leave for the day, and I wanted to write a short poem as a pick-me-up. She loved it. I did see her
the next day and she was still talking about her favorite patient, the poet 😊 Sometimes we can use
our words to simply bring a smile.
