CROHN'S POEMS

THE THANK YOU NOTE

We went to See's Candy.
She picked
the biggest box.
On the note
she wrote,
"To all the great nurses!"
and looked at me for approval.
I read what that tiny card really said.
"To all the great nurses,
not the bossy one,
not the one who left two stitches in me,
not the one that ripped the bandage off. 'Ouch'
No.
To all the great nurses,
the funny one
that had long conversations
with the IV machine,
big fat chocolates to her.
The night nurse who tried to be so quiet,
The nurse that brought
the two day old baby
from the next room
all wrapped up
for me to see,
to all the great nurses
who never made me feel
I was their job,
to the so patient nurses
that explained what they were doing.
To all the great nurses!
Thanks."
