The Carer

Hospice, Caring, Nursing, Elderly, Care


Weaver of dreams, hopes, and desires

Worker of kindnesses unseen

Wondrous servant of all you encounter

With gentle smile and encouragement

Whispered discreet


Helper that “seemingly never tires”

Hands-on supporter – keen

Humbly with humour – abuse you counter

Holder of hands as one heaven sent

Hummer of lullabies sweet


Carer, nurse, reliever of torment

Continuing even when really you’re dead on your feet




In honour of the nurses, carers, and care assistants that brighten our lives when they are often at the darkest.  Thank you.
