When I first deployed on Telic my mum wrote this peom... SOLDIER NURSE The box office has been open for quite a while, A production thatâll not create smiles. The theatres vast, With thousands of cast. But youâre well rehearsed, my soldier nurse. You step on the stage, the lights are bright, Your stomach tightens, do you fight or flight. Stage fright subsides, You know youâre in for a very long ride. Take heart, youâre well rehearsed, my soldier nurse. Your roleâs a serious one indeed, Many will rely on you when in need. Treat their wounds, treat their souls, All in the world are acting out roles. But do not fear, youâre well rehearsed my soldier nurse. This global stage, in stark limelight, Youâre there to help and put things right. Make the most of an interval, Create in your head a sanctuary hall. Remember, youâre well rehearsed my soldier nurse. Times will come, youâll want to cry, Why do so many have to die. But youâre a nurse and must be strong, Stronger in mind like the fighting throng. Go through the motions, youâre well rehearsed my solder nurse. My daughter, my daughter, I know youâll not falter. Fathers and mothers, Sisters and brothers. All rehearsed, my soldier nurse. This play will not an ending hath, We all do tread the circular path. At joy at birth, and our final rest, Take your life and do your best. My soldier nurse, my soldier nurse.
