He Was There
When a calming, quiet presence was all that was needed, He was there.
In the excitement and miracle of birth or in the mystery and loss of life, He was there.
When a silent glance could uplift a patient, family member of friend, He was there.
At those times when the unexplainable needed to be explained, He was there.
When the situation demanded a swift foot and sharp mind, He was there.
When a gentle touch, a firm push, or an encouraging word was needed, He was there.
In choosing the best one from a family’s “Thank You” box of chocolates, He was there.
To witness humanity,—its beauty, in good times and bad, without judgment, He was there.
To embrace the woes of the world, willingly, and offer hope, He was there.
And now, that it is time to be at the Greater One’s side, He is there.
Charles L. Robinson, Licensed Practical Nurse, we honor you this day and present this white rose and light this candle to symbolize our honor and appreciation for being our nurse colleague.
