Short Poems

1. “A Nurse’s Calling”
I see beyond the title
Of this role I have been called
A nurse with a heart full
Of love for all, young and old

2. “Comfort in Care”
A gentle touch, a word of hope
Can change the course of how we cope
Nurses bring comfort in their care
This is a gift beyond compare

In chaos and confusion
Amidst the darkest night
The nurse brings light and order
A beacon of hope and might

4. “A Nurse’s Heart”
In every moment, every task
A nurse pours out their heart
With compassion, grace, and care
Their healing touch is an art.

Medium Poems

1. “Healing Hands”
Gentle touch, steady heart,
A nurse’s care right from the start.
Guiding patients through dark days,
With empathy and skillful ways.
From newborns to the elderly,
Nurses care for all lovingly.
Their healing hands a gift to us,
A job they do with grace and trust.

2. “Everyday Heroes”
In scrubs and with stethoscopes,
Nurses walk through hospital scopes.
Though they may not wear a cape,
Their heroism takes the shape
Of long hours and countless tasks,
To ensure patients’ health can last.
They stand by bedsides day and night,
Their compassion shining bright.
Everyday heroes, we see you,
For all the amazing work you do.

3. “A Tribute to Nurses”
Here’s a tribute to nurses near and far,
For the time and energy they pour into their work so hard.
Their hands may be weary, their feet may ache,
But they never waver for their patients’ sake.
Their commitment and kindness can never be matched,
Ensuring every patient is cared for and not dispatched.
In sickness and in health, they stand by our side,
A friend, a caregiver, always ready to provide.
So here’s to nurses, our unsung heroes true,
For all the gratitude that’s long overdue.

Long Poems

Heart and Soul of the Healing Journey

Through sickness and pain, we all must tread,
And oftentimes we need a nurse to lead ahead,
A guiding light, a comfort in our moments of fear,
A smiling face, a listening ear.

In scrubs of blue or green or white,
A nurse’s presence is a soothing sight,
From emergency rooms to hospital wards,
They work tirelessly, with no regards.

They take our vitals, give us meds,
Tend our wounds and bow our heads,
They hold our hands and wipe away tears,
And calm our nerves of all our fears.

From the smallest babies to the eldest generation,
They care for all with a patient dedication,
They understand our pain and our strife,
And help us navigate this journey of life.

They work long hours and never complain,
Their kindness and compassion always the same,
They offer us hope and a glimmer of light,
And make our darkest days just a bit more bright.

Nurses, you are the heart and soul,
Of the healing journey we all must stroll,
We thank you for your tireless care,
Your devotion to all, beyond compare.

We honor you during this special week,
For all your hard work, your kindness and seek,
May you feel our gratitude and pride,
As we celebrate you, our nursing guide.
