When all of your loved ones are gone
As youâ€™re waiting for the doctor to come,
Iâ€™m the one that youâ€™re getting angry of
â€˜Cause you see me coming around.
Instead of hating you or getting mad,
I try to show you how to understand.
Though Iâ€™m not a doctor to save someoneâ€™s life,
I â€˜ll sit close beside you and I will listen
To your complaints, suffering, and pain
Somehow, I may take away all your fears.
Though Iâ€™m not a doctor who prescribes medicines,
Iâ€™ll serve you with tender, loving, and care.
For me, thatâ€™s something I should be proud.
Even in your slightest discomforts,
I am with you always
Making sure that youâ€™re all right,
As youâ€™re taking care with love and respect.
I am the one who believes in miracles
With my soft and gentle voice,
I bring you love and hope,
Render you my skillful care,
And show you my priceless smiles.
I am the one that comforts,
Stands and cares for you.
The one who dares to touch your hands
In your delicate moments
When youâ€™re feeling lonely and hopeless.
Iâ€™m the one who lets you know
That I will stay close beside you
When there is no one to embrace you.
Yes, I am the one with white uniforms.
A nurse with a caring nature
Who has compassion and empathy to others.
An advocate nurse
That the ultimate goal on earth is
For the best of human race.
