A Real Hero a PCA (An Ode for Nerine)

She shined
Beacon to the world

Of unrecognised stars
Of real angels
Of deserved Sainthoods

Her generosity unchallenged
A love for the aged

Forever giving time
To others in their twilight


At funerals
At bedsides
At desperate times

Perhaps just reading a book or a poem
The rare letter

The unpaid overtime

But never taking

Forever insisting she was owed nothing

That’s a PCA
That’s Nerine an Angel now in heaven
