I will be a lifesaver
I will be the love my patients will feel
I will be the scalpel cut of the heart
I will be the smell of human flesh

I will be the creator of the cure for all cancers
I will be the hand holds the heart
I will be the pressure on the chest if a patient goes into cardiac arrest
I will be the pinch of the needle

I will be the stethoscope of the heart’s whispers
I will be the reflex of the hammer
I will be the otoscope of the whispers that have been told
I will be the ophthalmoscope of who have walked away during hard times

I will be the beep of the heart monitor
I will be the time of the death
I will be the tears of those who have lost a loved one
I will be the grief

I will be the late hours
I will be the ICU
I will be the ER & OR
But most importantly I will be a lifesaver
