Arctic Rose Assisted Living Poem

With tender hearts and open minds,
The mentally disabled, they remind
Us all of our shared humanity
And the beauty in diversity.

Though they may face challenges each day,
They find their own unique way
To navigate a world that’s often unkind,
With strength and resilience that inspire the mind.

They teach us lessons, big and small,
To cherish each moment and value us all,
To be patient, kind, and accepting too,
And to see the world in a different view.

So let us embrace those who are different from us,
With compassion and empathy, without any fuss,
For in their struggles and their joys we find,
A reminder of our own humanity, intertwined.

Amidst the chaos of the war’s cruel might,
A soldier stood tall, his heart alight,
With a mission to defend and protect,
His country’s honor, never to neglect.

But in his heart burned a different fire,
A passion for kindness, never to tire,
A desire to heal, to comfort and to mend,
A soldier’s duty, his heart’s loyal friend.

And so he walked amidst the broken and weak,
A warrior’s heart with a tender streak,
With compassion that knows no bounds,
A healing hand that never frowns.

Through the horrors of war, he stood,
A beacon of hope, a guiding good,
With courage and strength beyond his years,
A soldier’s love, a world without fears.

So let us honor those who serve,
With hearts so big, so kind, so pure,
For in their care, we find the light,
A warrior’s heart, shining bright.

With armor strong and sword in hand,
A warrior stood in a foreign land,
With a mission to conquer and defend,
His strength a shield, his courage a friend.

But in his heart burned a different flame,
A passion for kindness, never to wane,
A desire to serve, to heal and to mend,
A warrior’s heart, with love to extend.

And so he walked amidst the broken and frail,
A hero’s heart with a tender tale,
With compassion that knows no bounds,
A warrior’s love, a soothing sound.

Through the battles of life, he stood,
A beacon of hope, a guiding good,
With bravery and might beyond his years,
A warrior’s love, a world without fears.

So let us honor those who serve,
With hearts so pure, so kind, so true,
For in their care, we find the light,
A warrior’s heart, shining bright.

In the halls of care and compassion, A nurse’s heart beats with great passion, For those who need a helping hand, A listening ear, a soul to understand. And in the world of the mentally disabled, A nurse’s kindness is greatly lauded, For with patience and empathy so true, She lifts the hearts of those she knew. Through the struggles and the pains they bear, A nurse’s heart is always there, A friend to guide them through the night, A light to shine, a hope in sight. For in the world of the mentally disabled, A nurse’s care is greatly treasured, A lifeline to those who feel alone, A heart to call, a place to call home. So let us honor those who serve, With hearts so big, so kind, so pure, For in their care, we find the light, A nurse’s heart, shining bright. And in the world of the mentally disabled, We find beauty in those who were labeled, For in their hearts, there is a fire, A spirit that never gives up, never tires.
