What is a Nurse

I sit beside you at the bedside, your eyes are closed
your hands are still and cool to touch.
I watch you breathe slow shallow breaths with moments of
My breath stops with each pause of yours

My life, whatever I have is separate from yours
You have your family and I have mine.

But we are connected you and I in this moment of time
We have this light around us that helps you move into your next

You are part of why I am a nurse.  I have become who I am because of
such experiences.

I reflect on the past
moments of joy; elation; sadness; success; security; insecurity; happiness; hope.
