“Angel at My Side”
A Heartfelt Tribute Song to Nurses Everywhere By: Colette Washington

I had a dream there was an angel at my side
Her face all aglow, just like candlelight
She took my hand and she held it tight
And she told me everything was going to be alright

I was sick, I was tired, and I was weak
She became my voice, when I could no longer speak
My life was fading like a wilted flower
She took good care of me in my darkest hour

I just want to thank her for fighting for my life
I just want to thank her for standing up for human rights
I just want to thank her for all the tears she’s dried
I just want to thank her for being the angel at my side
She an angel at my side – Angel at my side
I just want to thank her for being the angel at my side
She an angel at my side

As I drifted in and out of sleep
I prayed to the heavens my soul to keep
I didn’t know for sure if I could take it
And I didn’t know how much longer I might take it

So before I perish from this earth
I want you to know how much you’re worth
To all the nurses everywhere
I just want to say thank you for your tender love and care
