Art and Poem: Angel of Mercy

Angel of Mercy

The warrior for life looks up at the night sky

and thanks God and whoever else is watching

that lives were saved this day.

The war is not done,

it is far from won,

but every little battle

that ends in triumph is a

victory for humankind.

"Please grant me the  power to save,

the power to heal, to comfort,

and if this be my last day on Earth,

let me rest with the memory

that I did all I could to  ease

another one's suffering in the night

and the memory that I did what

my calling destined me to do."
