Thank You Little Nurses

Today I saw,
How much you care,
For your poor dear old Mum.
Concern flashed plain,
Across your faces,
When you learned I had come
Home from work,
Feeling unwell,
And looking rather pale.
You took my hands
Into your own,
And embarked on a tale.
A story meant to cheer me up,
And then a lullaby,
As you tucked me into bed,
And urged that I should try
To get some sleep,
And feel well soon,
You covered me with kisses,
And made sure I was comfortable.
I love you little misses!

  1. Pooky, this is one to treasure. A precious memory beautifully captured and held forever in time.
    And you wrote even though you were unwell, that’s commitment.
    Hope you’re feeling better soon
    Tricia xx

      They were precious bless them. I was feeling really rough and even before I could respond to their excitement at unexpectedly seeing me mid-afernoon I had to make a dash for the loo – as I threw up little Ellie came in and said ‘Oh poor Mummy. I love you so much’ bless her! I think they quite liked having someone to nurse!

      Feeling a lot better now thank you – and as for writing when sick, I think it probably just shows I’m sadly sadly addicted at this point 😉

      Need to now show the same level of dedication to my marathon training before my trainers go mouldy!

    Dedicated loving nurses indeed, how wonderful!
    Enjoyed the surprise created by the run-on lines and staggered spacing of this poem.

  4. Beautiful poem, Pooky, and treasured little nurses, too. I hope by now you’re feeling better. I’m on day 12 of being sick, but am slowly on the mend…xx
