A dedication to all the nurses of the Rotary Ward, of the William Harvey Hospital, Ashford, Kent, England.
I thought the cancer would kill me.
The doctor would try his best,
But who gave me the courage to calmly,
Face the knife, with my mind so at rest.
It was Sarah my nurse, on that fearful night,
who knew my every thought.
Her soft spoken words, to stop my fright.
The soft hand, as fear I fought.
Who gave me the will to laugh at pain,
That nurse with the angel face.
Who gave me the will to live again,
That nurse with the boundless grace
Doctors may carve, cut and sew you,
But the soul they can never reach.
It takes the heart of a woman true,
As love they give to each.
