Dedicated to all the nurses on Ward 12B at the Canberra Hospital in 2008 which was the year of my stroke.

Aye that’s her
She’s a nurse don’t you know
She’s kind of special
Kind of nice
There in the morning
And again at night
That smiling face
It will make things right
Your body aches, just to get out of bed
Then that reassuring voice
You’ll get there all right!!
Your  in the shower learning to wash
Feeling embarrassed
And  feeling your lost
The voice says don’t worry
This is nothing new
We’ve seen it before and we’ll see it again
It made me feel normal
Made my face crack a smile
Even though its twisted
And has been for a while
The open caring face lets the sun shine in
Makes the day start of with sort of a grin
Yes nurses are special
Because in a way
They make the days seem shorter
In the nicest way
Hospitals aren’t the places that you want to be
But without special nurses
Where would we be
