K ind as any person you would want to meet.
I nterested in those she sees.
R are the qualities she possesses.
S ees others needs and these she addresses.
T he people’s pets she talks to and gently caresses.
E veryday is different from the one before.
N urse is her profession, going to each patient’s home and door.
Kirsten is a very good nurse,
I hope that’s easy to see.
I broke my arm about a week ago,
Now she comes twice daily to me.
She watched and listened very carefully,
When I instructed her about what had to be done.
She wasn’t upset or insulted,
And didn’t think I was implying she was dumb.
When she comes to do her job,
She’s careful not to hurt me or cause me pain.
I really do appreciate that,
Because I feel like on her I’m not a drain.
