Westminster Hall Debates 20 May 2008

Westminster Hall

What do you see nurses
What do you see?
Are you thinking
When you are looking at me
A crabbit old woman
Not very wise,
Uncertain of habit
With far-away eyes,
Who dribbles her food
And makes no reply,
When you say in a loud voice
‘I do wish you’d try’
Who seems not to notice
The things that you do,
And forever is losing
A stocking or shoe,
Who unresisting or not
Lets you do as you will
With bathing and feeding
The long day to fill,
Is that what you’re thinking,
Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes nurse,
You’re not looking at me...
I remember the joys,
I remember the pain,
And I’m loving and living
Life over again,
I think of the years
All too few—gone too fast,
And accept the stark fact
That nothing can last.
So open your eyes nurses,
Open and see,
Not a crabbit old woman,
Look closer—see ME.
