Prayer Poem for a Special Nurse

In Honor of: A Special Nurse Retired
Prayer Poem for Retiring Nurse:

Long before you entered nursing, the Lord
had played His part, planting seeds of
love and kindness in the portals of your heart.
For it’s clear that you’ve been gifted
with a sympathetic heart, and blessed from
the beginning with a willingness to cheer.

And the people who you care for,
are better off by far, when they’re touched by
your compassion, by the person that you are. 
For in times of woe and worry, when they’re
frightened or they’re blue, no one could be more
consoling than the friend they’ll find in you!

Appreciation Message and Best Wishes for the Retiring Nurse:

You’re a truly awesome nurse & an amazing person. 
May you have a relaxing retirement,
knowing that your hard work and dedication
was an inspiration to us all!
