When the body needs
immediate care
it can be found at the ICU

Where Care comes without asking—

Vital signs monitored,
Nurses looks after pulse
A volunteer offers a magazine

and a chaplain knocks
on the door—
Is everything okay?

Flowers arrive
with cards bearing
best wishes,

An aid leaves water on the table.
What if everyone in the world,
would keep an eye

on one another’s vital signs?
Everyone would learn to see
You would see me, and

I would See You
