We're the ones who wash and dress, Our patients for the day. We're the ones who take the time, To listen to them speak. We listen about their lifetime, In a forty hour week. We also give our hands to hold, When someone's feeling scared. It's not easy being a patient, You're never quite prepared. We take the time to listen, By lending both our ears. We listen to their worries, Or how they've spent their years. Our arms were made to reach, And even wrap around. To give our patients hugs, When their feeling a little down. We help our patients do the things, They used to do on their own. Everybody needs some help, Even when we're grown. So who are you to refer to us, As "only" a CNA? We do our best to meet their needs, Within our working day. We chose to do this job, The job did not choose us. We sympathize and empathize, Compassion is a must. We try to keep them comfortable, And free of any fear. We sit along beside them, When that time is near. We hold their hand, stroke their hair, Just making sure they know. Their not alone, an aide is there, It's ok for them to go. To all the CNA's keep your head held high, We're not "only" CNA's. WE'RE ANGEL'S IN DISGUISE!!
