Quietly they care for crying infants,
rocking bassinets so smoothly
Serene and calm with the nursing home patients,
cautioning them away from the stairs,
helping them with their meals.
Every war victim, in every bed
get individual attention and regular medication.
All watched over by Machines of Loving Grace
Careful and delicate,
dutiful and patient, each and every minute of
each and every day.
Forever and ever, Amen.
