“Only A CNA?” by Dawn Mazzola

Who are you to refer to us
As "Only" a CNA?

We're the ones who wash and dress
Our patients for the day.

We're the ones who take the time
To listen to them speak.

We listen about their lifetime
In a forty hour week.

We also give our hands to hold
When someone's feeling scared.

It's not easy being a patient;
You're never quite prepared.

We take the time to listen
By lending both our ears.

We listen to their worries
Or how they've spent their years.

Our arms were made to reach
And even wrap around.

To give our patients hugs
When they're feeling a little down.

We help our patients do the things
They used to do on their own.

Everybody needs some help,
Even when we're grown.

So who are you to refer to us
As "only" a CNA?

We do our best to meet their needs
Within our working day.

We chose to do this job;
The job did not choose us.

We sympathize and empathize;
Compassion is a must.

We try to keep them comfortable
And free of any fear.

We sit along beside them
When that time is near.

We hold their hand, stroke their hair,
Just making sure they know.

They're not alone, an aide is there.
It's okay for them to go.

To all the CNAs, keep your head held high,

We're not "only" CNAs.



Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .
