My Poems

A Nurse Holds Your Hand

Life measured in breaths and heartbeats
Tiny mountains drawn on screens
Each moving pixel hill
An uphill path back home
To life calling your name
The tubes, beeps, warm skin
Giving hope a line to cling to
The next world extends its hand
Infinite reassurance
While a nurse holds yours
Unsure of your next step
Their heart rooting for yours
I watched the New York Times piece that showed the ICU through a nurse’s eyes. It shows how much nurses are doing for their patients and the toll it’s taking on them. Thank you to all the nurses, doctors and medical staff working tirelessly this past year to help us get through the pandemic.
Nurses are the angels we need during this dark time.
