Casualty!

At that moment my mind was not focused

caught my hand in a car door!

Intense pain thought I’d broken a finger

decided to go to casualty.

It was quiet as I entered in a lot of pain

knowing I’d have to explain.

 

The lady on the desk said I’d have to wait

hopefully not for long.

Surprised it was only about half an hour

saw a triage nurse.

Took me to a small cubicle to be seen

through a curtained screen.

 

I laid down on a couch resting my eyes

a sound made me aware.

Very surprised a nurse stood beside me

she was very pleasant.

Her uniform seemed an unusual style

not speaking for a while.

 

Then she spoke in a soft gentle way

that made the pain ease.

Said I’d be fine touched my hand

such kindness no demand.

Went to thank her but she’d gone

surprised but felt strong!

 

Then another nurse came quickly in

to say I needed an x-ray.

Before the doctor was able to see me

could I follow her.

I said the other nurse had been kind

walking closely behind.

 

She turned telling me she was on her own

giving a description!

A blank expression she didn’t work there

the uniform not used for years!

Very perplexed I said no more to her

but who was my nice comforter?

 

Was it the pain making me hallucinate

or had it been a ghost?
