Soldiers.

They were dressed in scrubs with gloves.
Masked superheroes with their own guns.
Their brains… restless.
Rotating around me like the Sun.
Dinner and breakfast.
Risking their own lungs…
Willingly….
to keep this villain from killing me.
Women and men loving me like their own sons.
Refusing to let me die.
Chest compressions when my heart stopped…
When one got tired the other said….
“Let me try?”
Covid-19’s worst fear is a Nurse’s care.
My anxiety and doubt would run out whenever a nurse appeared.
Soldiers of the ICU.
You’ll never know when a Nurse is scared.
Strong on the front lines…
but I’m sure during lunchtime they burst with tears.
Most of us wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you…
who fought the invisible villain that none of us knew.
