... A Poem "
( Compassion, Respect, Restoration thru Nurturing of a broken body and soul. )
by: Franklin Rebay Dela Cruz BSN RN CRRN SCRN
..... a Diminutive image of a gentle, compassionate hands ; caressing the forehead of a meekly sick old man.
Covering his shivering torso with a shear aged wool; while carefully respecting his dignity, in full.
Watching the old man status decline, I prayed to God for my nursing wisdom, judgement and restoration to bind.
Waiting for the light to shine and lessen his pain and health inclined.
Then nurturing his weakened body and mind,
His soul recovered and breathed back to life in time.
