It’s National Nurses Week. This Typewriter Rodeo poem celebrates the people that are there to help in some of the happiest and most difficult periods of life.
To Our Favorite Healthcare Team
Worried and weary
and a bit worse for the wear
we tumble into our appointment
Quickly enveloped in your care and concern
We weave our way through
and deep breaths
and minute med tweaks
And here’s the thing:
We know so deeply
That you have our back
That you’re there for us
But today I need you to know:
That we also have your back
That we’ll work to make our gratitude known
That the work you’re doing is
allowing us to live our best lives
To our RNs CMAs NPs MDs DOs
