This is a poem written by my daughter.
I felt the need to share it with all who care to read it
My family and friends were touched by it
What depth of expression for one so young.......


Oh my gosh get me outta here,
I don’t wanna be here,
The sounds of bullets,
And bombs exploding
Is what I do not like
I am rowing and rowing,
Please let me be ok,
To get into the nurses tent,
And let me be safe and sound,
Be ready for my patients,
And I will be right here,
If I die I will be in your heart,
And that will be near,
Me and my family will be ok,
Because I am brave,
When the injured arrive I am ready,
And I help them in the tent
I miss my family and now I am worried,
Because I heard my best friend was shot,
I need to help him so I wait for him to arrive,
Then I tell him “It’ll be ok”,
I fix him up and remove the bullet from his heart,
Then a tear comes to my eyes,
As I realise my friend is not going to survive,
And slowly he died,
In my arms,
I tell him I’ll miss him more than ever,
I am desperate for him to come back,
I hear screaming and yelling,
I see flashes of gunfire,
I feel sad my friend has died,
I move the dead from their beds,
And think God get me outta here,
Make all this a dream,
I will be ok back with my family,
I am about to call my best friend,
Safe and warm with no worries,
But I’m not,
So I face my fears,
And continue hopefully,
My luck will start to change,
And I will be back home safe,
warm and alive,
But my best friend gone,
I will remember him,
And all others forever.
