A nurse's response

Don't Call Me Hero

I didn't feel like a hero
For there just wasn't time
I didn't feel like a hero
For there were hills to climb

What is this word they banter about
Never said I was a Boy Scout

I didn't feel like a hero
For the virus was so abrupt
I didn't feel like a hero
For all I could do was suck it up

I'm ever a nurse and ever so strong
Though my days seem mighty long

I didn't feel like a hero
For I felt the trembling fear
I didn't feel like a hero
For my own concerns I shed a tear

Just doing the job I've always done
Morning, night, til break of dawn

I didn't feel like a hero
For cloaked behind masks and gowns
I didn't feel like a hero
For safety I limited my rounds

I"ll be here singing my nurse's song
Taking care of people where I belong

I didn't feel like a hero
.For I doubled my gloves
I didn't feel like a hero
For I prayed to the heavens above

I didn't feel like a hero
For I worried about my friends
I didn't feel like a hero
For just wanting it all to end


I'm no super-hero, but part of the best
With no flying cape will I be dressed


I didn't feel like a hero
For they needed me bedside
I didn't feel like a hero
For I cried when you died

One promise I'll make right from the start
Ever and always I'll give you my heart

What is this word they banter about
Never said I was a Boy Scout
I'm ever a nurse and ever so strong
Though the days seem mighty long
Just doing the job I've always done
Morning, night, til break of dawn
I"ll be here singing my nurse's song
Taking care of people where I belong
I'm no super-hero, but part of the best
With no flying cape will I be dressed
One promise I'll make right from the start
Ever and always I'll give you my heart
