How could I ever forget what happened on that great day?
“Wake up sleepy” I heard as my eyes hit the sun’s ray.
My mother gently lifted me and washed my seven-year old body.
Her voice coaxing me to awake and become sturdy.
“Jesus would be teaching in the synagogue this morning”
We have to be there with granny and time is running”.

I got ready and my mum spoke as we entered granny’s room.
“What would you wear mum, we’ll be leaving soon.”
“Oh…I don’t think I want to go today child
I am too tired for Jesus teachings so wild
Besides, today is the day of the Sabbath
Isn’t that the day God rested on His throne as He sat?”

“Oh mother” my mother cried softly,
“Please let’s obey the law and then see,
If the Lord God Himself won’t bless us
As Abraham Isaac and Jacob was.
“Alright child” my granny responded
“Get my stick, my scarlet and lift me from this bed.

Perhaps my mood will lighten by wearing red.”
Mother lifted granny and helped her softly tread.
I saw what I usually saw everytime granny tried to walk
And asked the same question like one who likes to talk.
“Gran, why do always walk like you’re carrying the luggage
of one who’s embarking on a voyage?”

I asked because she was so bent,
You could clearly see her energy had been spent.
“Don’t worry, my little one” said my grand mother
I’ll be alright, so don’t shudder.”
We got to the synagogue and heard Jesus teaching
He then turned to my granny in her scarlet sitting.

“Come” He said to her dear soul
She stood and took the steps that would make her whole.
Jesus touched her waist and granny stood upright
The rest of us amazed at the lovely sight
Mother’s eyes filled with tears of joy and relief
God healed granny because of her belief.

We rejoiced with no care of the Sabbath law
Spreading the good news to everyone we saw.
Granny stopped walking like she carried a luggage
For Jesus gloriously helped her out of that carriage.
How could I ever forget that day?
God’s love was shown to us all the way!

Miracles do happen as you have shown in your poem, thank God.

What a lovely tale of a healed woman - well done.

A lovely story in poetry form. It would be a more enjoyable read if you made sure all of your sentences made sense: ‘and time is running.’ Do you get someone else to proofread for you?
